Turtle Fest!!

So many turtles!!!!!!

What a perfect day following the windy conditions of Thurdsay and rain Friday.  I paddled straight down to the boat ramp….. Not knowing what was waiting for me.   Two turtles were there so I cruised up between them.  Then a third surfaced creating an instant turtle triangle!  But that was just the beginning of my turtle kind of day.  So many turtles were surrounding me!  At one point, two turtles came right up to my board and practically climbed on!  Then they spooked each other and both turtles went flying into the water…… Splashing water all over me!  That has never happened before!  I could barely keep count…. But I’m pretty sure there were twenty-one turtles at the boat ramp today!  I was so excited to get a turtle day!  Other paddlers came by and just watched what was going on…… I was surrounded by turtles!   It was amazing!  The day was perfect …. Especially loaded with turtles.  Swimming was nice too with pretty good visibility………just an all around great day!
