Turtle Dreams!

morning visitor!

I think I must be dreaming……..sixteen turtles again today!  Perfect paddling with just a breeze blowing from the south.  I couldn’t wait to get down to the boat ramp and see my turtles!  They didn’t disappoint me either…….I hadn’t been there ten minutes when I was surrounded by five turtles!  There was a kayak there with a man and woman on it too and they got surrounded too.  Both of us were just sitting in the middle of a turtle fest!  Another guy on a paddle board came over to see the turtles. He was visiting from San Jose, CA and he yelled, “Hey are those your turtles?” so I said, “Yup!”,  and then he said, “Do you just have them out for a walk?’, and I said, “Yup!”……then he said “I love it!”  Just about the time he said that, the turtle pictured above, popped up for a photo!  I got to sit in a turtle line of four turtles; I sat in between multiple turtles; and was surrounded by a group of turtles!  It certainly was a turtle day!

Hello there!

Hello there!

It was so perfect down at the boat ramp!  I paddled back in nice conditions, but the wind started to come up as I was loading my board onto my racks.  It got somewhat overcast too and that made the water visibility not as good but I still had a refreshing swim!  I hope these conditions last!
