Spectacular Day!!

What a great day out on the water!  It was so perfect!  Of course I headed to my favorite place hoping the turtles would be around…..  Well they sure were!   Five friendly turtles happy to get their picture taken!  I got to sit in between two turtles and they were all around me!  I was having such a great time that I didn’t nitice the water  getting a bit choppy.   The wind was acting like it was serious about coming in so I headed back.  Another big turtle popped up while I was passing Kam 3 and it was friendly too…. Just begging me to stay and play.  I wanted to stay….but the wind was bearing down on me.  I continued on paddling against the wind all the way back!  It was quite the workout.  I didn’t even mind the wind because it was blowing the right direction….. Blowing the vog back!  I made it in and hurried to put my board onto my racks.   The wind backed off for a few minutes and then roared in again.  I went swimming and swam into the wind and let the wind push me back.  The wind gently tossed me around but I didn’t fight it.   The water was so clear and beautiful!  What a nice day and SIX turtles too!!!
