Twenty Turtles!!

First turtle of the day!

First turtle of the day!!

The wind was already blowing from the south when I arrived at the beach, but I went out anyway and I’m sure glad I did!  As soon as I started to pass Kam II…..the wind completely backed off and it was so glassy!  It was perfect conditions paddling down to the boat ramp and when I got there, I was the only person there.  As I paddled up, two turtles surfaced so I sat happily in between them!  The turtles kept surfacing and twice I was surrounded by several turtles.  I saw the turtle “Lizard” and also “Bumpy” today!

Good morning!

Good morning!

Before I knew it, I had counted twenty turtles!  I was in turtle heaven for sure!  Then the scuba boat that spins around when it comes in……zoomed in and mucked up my little turtle heaven!  That boat is so annoying……

Loving my honu!

After that, the turtles seemed to disappear……..probably hiding!  Then I headed back to Kam I and the wind cooperated all the way through my swim!  What a beautiful day!
