Sweet Sixteen!!

Surprise!

Surprise!

Unbelievable……THREE DAYS OF PERFECT PADDLING AND TURTLES!!!  I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming!  Today I had sixteen turtles come visit me, even several smaller younger turtles who were very inquisitive.  Two of them seemed to be hanging out together, although I have heard that turtles are solitary creatures, they sure seemed to be buddies!

Two buddies!

Two buddies!

They took turns popping up and checking me out!  It was so perfect down at the boat ramp!  I just wanted to stay there indefinitely!  The last turtle played hide and seek, by popping up on one side of my board and then diving under me and popping up on the other side of me!  It was hard to get a photo of that.  I paddled back in perfect conditions and swam in perfect conditions too.  I saw quite a few small colorful tropical fish, some I don’t usually see down there too.  Maybe the new exposed reef and rocks have something they like to eat on them.  I wonder if it will be four perfect paddling days tomorrow?  We’ll see………I can’t wait!
