Beautiful Day!!

Nice day!

Nice day!

What a strange morning.  It was overcast and windy but I went to the beach anyway and the ocean wasn’t calm.  The wind was blowing from the south so I headed down to the boat ramp.  On the way, I ran into a paddling friend so we paddled together against the wind.  About the time we were passing Kam III, the wind started to back off and the sun started to creep out and it got beautiful!  We sat at the boat ramp and chatted but only saw two turtles today.  One was lazily hanging out on a coral shelf down below and the other one surprised us out of nowhere!  It came zooming by, it popped up a couple of times for air, and then it was gone!  Those were the turtles for the day but I guess that was better than none.  It stayed so calm and nice on the way back and all the way through my swim!  It wasn’t as clear at the reef as usual but I saw some fish and swam back.  The wind stayed out pretty much and other people left the beach.  It was still so nice and I was almost by myself!  The wind just started to come up when I left.  The day started of iffy…..but I’m sure glad I stuck with it because it ended up perfect!  I hope I see more turtles tomorrow though…….
