Twenty-two Turtles!!

Fancy meeting you here!

Fancy meeting you here!

The weather channel was calling for 22 mph winds today……..but the question was, when will that happen?  I checked the beach cam and it looked so glassy and nice.  I tried to get down to the beach early enough to hopefully beat the wind and luckily I found a place to park right in front!  It was just beautiful!  I paddled down to the boat ramp…..and as I was passing Kam II, I ran across my first turtle.  I stopped but it just swam around under me a few times and then dove down.  Then as I was passing Kam III, another turtle popped up near me so I stopped to visit and get a photo (there it is in the above photo!)  It was a very friendly turtle!  Down at the boat ramp, I got to visit with twenty more turtles!  They were all around and I got some great photos too!  It was so nice down there……  Except for a very noisy group of snorkelers passing by.  I paddled back in nice conditions and it was still beautiful.  Just as I got my board up the beach and onto my racks, the wind came roaring in as predicted!  It was a windy walk and then the wind backed off momentarily when I started out my swim, but then roared in again as I headed back from swimming.  It was work swimming against the wind!  The wind was so ferocious when I got back in that all my stuff was covered in sand!  I ended up hauling it all up to the grass before I took a shower.  It was REALLY  windy!  I hope tomorrow morning is just as nice!
