Nice Day!!

Beautiful!

Beautiful!

After a windy spell and a day with rain…… Finally this morning was nice!  I paddled in loopy conditions out on the water…….. With the loopy swells pushing from the north.  I knew it was supposed to get windy so I hurried down to the boat ramp.  When I arrived down there, four other paddlers were already there.  None of them were seeing any turtles.  The water was bumpy so I headed back.  Some days it’s just about the exercise and enjoying the sights!  It’s always good to get out on the ocean.  It was during my swim that a turtle appeared and I got to swim with it for a few minutes!  The ocean temperature is about 84 degrees!  I have never seen the ocean this warm here.  The sad thing is that this unusually warm water is harming the coral.   Down at the reef…… So may coral were bleached white.   I also noticed a lack of fish there which is odd.  I heard that the warm water was sticking around until maybe February….. I hope the coral and fish survive it!
