Fifteen Turtles!!

Oh hello!

Oh hello!

The ocean wasn’t very calm this morning either……but I decided to go for it!  It was a beautiful day, so I headed straight down to the boat ramp.  I didn’t see the white caps out there today so I took a chance with the wind.  It was great paddling down to the boat ramp!

Nice paddling!

Nice paddling!

When I arrived I didn’t see a single turtle.  I was hoping the turtles would not make me wait but I ended up waiting anyway!  Suddenly three turtles surfaced and I was in a turtle triangle!  There were turtles of all sizes today!  The turtles kept coming up.  I sat in-between two sets of two turtles too!  When I had counted fourteen turtles, I decided to take advantage of the decent conditions and paddle back.  The wind stayed away while I swam too and I even swam with a turtle!  That made fifteen turtles all to myself today!  It was a gorgeous day until the wind came hurling in blowing sand everywhere and toppling umbrellas!  I hope it’s nice tomorrow…….

Just beautiful!

Just beautiful!
