It rained last night and it was an overcast morning but the ocean was pretty calm so I went out paddling. It was already nine o’clock but I decided to paddle to the boat ramp anyway. I figured that I had at least an hour before any wind came up. I was met by two turtles so I paddled up between them! Then a third and fourth turtle popped up and I was surrounded! It was pretty calm at the boat ramp and easy to spot the turtles. By the time a friend came down I had already had eleven turtles visit me!
Four more turtles surfaced and one of them came right to my board and bumped me twice! I was just sitting on my board and after it bumped me it swam under me! I love talking to the turtles! Then three turtles were all bunched together at the nose of my board. It was quite a turtle day! Then I stayed too long at Kam 2 chatting with a friend and got caught in some wind! I had to fight my way back to Kam 1. What a mistake! The sun came out finally while I swam and I swam with another turtle on my way back! It had a beautiful healthy shell. The turtle swam under me and then surfaced and swam right next to me! I’m so thrilled that I got two turtle days in a row!
