Perfect Day for Paddling!!

Hi there!

Hi there!

After three days of windy conditions…..this morning looked perfect!  I hurried down to the beach and got out on my board about 9 a.m.  It was beautiful and glassy!  I paddled down to the boat ramp and on my way I saw several people paragliding and landing on the grass at Kam III.  I would never be brave enough to do that!  Down at the boat ramp an outrigger canoe was there and the people on the canoe were out in the water snorkeling.  I could hear them saying how many turtles were down on the bottom, so I knew I was going to have turtles today!  Sure enough, almost immediately three turtles surfaced!  Then a paddling friend paddled up and there were nine more turtles after that.  At one point there were five turtles surrounding me and also a turtle triangle!  The water was so clear…..we could see Trumpet fish swimming around down by the coral!  We stayed for quite a while and then paddled back.  Just about the time my husband and I were commenting on how perfect the day was……the wind blew in.  It didn’t let up so I needed help loading my board onto my racks safely.  Oh well, I was wishing for a good paddling day….. and I got my wish!
