Perfecft Conditions!!

The water is so warm!

The water is so warm!

Wow, it was such perfect conditions this morning! I didn’t get out until almost 9:30 a.m. but I was determined to paddle down to the boat ramp.  Just as I paddled out, I ran into two paddling friends on their way back from the boat ramp.  They told me they saw a four to five foot shark!  I asked if it had a white tip on its fin and they said it did.  There is a white tip shark that lives down at the boat ramp and hides in the coral.  I paddled down to the boat ramp in perfect conditions and never saw the shark.  Down at the boat ramp, the ocean was so glassy!  The puffy clouds scattered in the sky were even reflecting in the glassy water!  I saw three turtles today….. which is one more than yesterday….but no photos.  I don’t know where the turtles are hiding right now but they don’t seem to be hanging out at the boat ramp.  I paddled back in perfect conditions and just as I was going in the wind started up.  I managed to get my board rinsed off and hoisted up on my racks before the wind really got crazy.  It was so windy when I went for my swim!  The water is clearing up nicely, though, so hopefully it will be clear tomorrow too.  By the time I went home, the wind was blowing sand around…….not my favorite kind of conditions!  Maybe tomorrow………
