I really needed a day like this! Just a little cloud cover, slight breeze from the south, and glassy conditions! I’m so glad I got down to the boat ramp and my turtles didn’t disappoint me either. As I paddled into the area, I spotted four turtles just out a bit! I paddled over to them and two of them disappeared, but I paddled right up between the turtles! I couldn’t decide which one to photograph first! Then I realized that one of the turtles was Bumpy….. in the photo he is posing right in front of my board! I was so happy to see him and the other seven turtles that I had the pleasure of hanging out with. I had the place to myself, which was surprising since it is a Sunday, but I wasn’t complaining! One of the turtles was very small, probably a juvenile and it was very inquisitive. After counting eight turtles, I decided to head back….one very happy paddler! The conditions stayed perfect too. I didn’t want to come in!
Swimming was a joy too and the water is so clear right now! What a nice day on Maui!
