Perfect Paddling!!



It was so windy yesterday!  I ended up just swimming.  Today was different!  It was another one of those totally perfect days.  The white caps were far out so I took a chance and paddled down to the boat ramp. It was so perfect I couldn’t believe it!  After the first turtle surfaced….. A kayak with two people and a dog on it cruised into the area.   The second turtle surfaced and the dog started barking at it!  The turtle spooked and dove down.  I decided to move away from the barking dog.   Out farther a turtle popped up so I got some photos.  Sadly the turtle had some tumors growing on it which made me sad.  The turtle seemed okay though so maybe it will live a while longer.  I paddled back in still perfect conditions……. So glassy!  It stayed perfect through my swim as well.   The visibility is great right now!  I saw lots of fish down at the reef including the big Puffer fish that has been hanging around lately.  I would be happy for another perfect paddling day tomorrow too!
