Perfect Paddling Day!

One turtle!

One turtle!

The wind was already up this morning…..blowing from the south…..but I headed to the boat ramp anyway.  I ran into a paddling friend so we paddled together.  By the time we arrived at the boat ramp, the wind backed off and it was perfect!  We sat at the boat ramp for a while but no turtles were showing up……..and just as we were getting ready to head back, I spotted a turtle swimming under the water right next to me!  I followed it for a while and it just  kept swimming back and forth under my board.  Before I knew it, I was out in front of Kam III and it finally surfaced!  I snapped a quick photo and the turtle dove down again.  So far since I’ve been back from our trip, the turtles have not been coming up to visit.  Oh well, the day just ended up being perfect for paddling and swimming anyway!  Maybe that turtle will pass the word on that I’m back!  The wind didn’t really come up again while I was at the beach but it got really hot…..like Summer just hit!  I guess it is June!  I hope the turtles come back soon…..maybe tomorrow…….
