Turtle Buddies Waiting For Me!!

OH wow!!   The vog looked so bad this morning that I wondered about even going down to the beach.  Glad I reconsidered because it ended up being a perfect paddling day!  I paddled down to the boat ramp and although there were some other paddlers there already……. I had a turtle triangle waiting for me!  Then two more turtles joined us and I was surrounded!  I was really excited about all the turtles!  Then two more turtles popped up and I got lots of photos of all of them.  A couple on a kayak were yelling   ” hey they are posing for you!”  And it seemed they were!  It was still plenty voggy but at least the turtles were around today.  I paddled back in nice conditions and it stayed nice for my swim too.   On my way back a healthy looking female turtle appeared in front of me…… So I turned around and swam with her down to the point!  That made eight turtles for today!  I’ll take it!!  Now if we could just get those trade winds to come back and blow this nasty vog away……… I loved my turtle day though!
