Five Lovely Turtles!

I got lucky with the wind.   It was forecast to be strong today but it held off until I was done paddling and swimming.  I could clearly see all white caps out farther…… But it thsnkfully didn’t come in while I was out on the water.  I paddled down to the boat ramp  in conditions that were a bit choppy.  The white caps out there were sending in some choppy water.  The wind has been blowing the right way lately so no vog right now!  The tour boat was already at the bost ramp with its snorkelers so it was another turtle sharing day.   The first turtle surfaced in the middle of the snorkelers!  It was so close to them.   Then another turtle popped up.  I moved out away from the snorkelers and encountered two more turtles as I cruised up between them. The other islands were visible today and the West Maui mountains were so clear!  One last turtle surfaced and that made five turtles for today!  I paddled back to Kam 1 and then went for a swim.  The wind tried to come in a couple of times but still had not fully arrived by the time I left the beach.  I was so happy to be out on my board after missing yesterday!  I hope the wind cooperates tomorrow too!
