Turtle Heaven!!

Turtles, Stingrays and Fish....oh my!

Turtles, Stingrays and Fish…oh my!

I’m getting very attached to this beach!  Since I haven’t found a stand up board yet…… Swimming and snorkeling are my things right now and the sea creatures are getting me hooked!  Yesterday there were at least a dozen turtles to swim with and today I had six turtles!  Some of them friendly enough for me to rub their shells!  They sure love to munch the sea grass.  Today I floated with about five turtles, two stingrays and a long silvery fish with a long pointed snout!  When I swam in I ran across a small turtle in shallow water and it swam by me so I got to rub its shell too!  Usually the smaller turtles are quick to leave you in the dust but this one stuck around.   The skies still threatened rain but at least it waited until we left the beach.  I hope the weather improves……..I am pretty bummed out that our trip to Lake Bacalar got cancelled.  It is one place I know for sure has stand up boards!  Oh well…….
