Perfect Paddling!!

Oh wow!  What a perfect day!  When I first went out paddling,  I could see the white caps looming out farther and that was creating a little choppiness on the water.  I figured I had at least an hour before the wind blew in so I headed to the boat ramp.  It was a joy to see clear skies with no Vog!  It was a great view of Kahoolawe today.  I got down to the bost ramp just as the tour boat was arriving.  The first turtle that popped up quickly got over run with snorkelers and they were harassing the turtle!  Then they interfered with my attempt to get a photo.  The same thing happened with the next turtle!  I was getting annoyed and the boat staff wasn’t telling them to stop.  Finally I moved away from the snorkelers and two turtles surfaced…. one on each side of my board.  I was able to get some photos that time.  Then three more turtles popped up and that made seven turtles for the day!    On the way back… The wind completely backed off and it got so perfect!  I really didn’t want to go in.  The conditions stayed so nice all the way through my swim too!  I hope tomorrow is just as nice…….
