Perfect Paddling and Eighteen Turtles!!

What a perfect day for paddling!  The wind backed off and the whole ocean got glassy!  It was straight down to the boat ramp today and the turtles did not disappoint.  A paddling friend and I were immediately surrounded twice by several turtles and the turtles kept popping up!  There were turtle triangles and a line of turtles and I got to sit between turtles too!  A couple of turtles came so close and one bumped my board!

Hi there buddy!

Hi there buddy!

There were so many turtles!  I counted eighteen turtles for today!  Then some very stormy clouds and rain over the ocean seemed to be heading north in our direction so I decided to paddle back.  It was perfect all the way back too!  My swim was just as nice too with lots of Unicorn fish and Yellow Tangs down at the reef.  It was just an overall spectacular day!  I’m hoping for more of the same tomorrow!
