Swimming With A Turtle!!

It was another nice day!  It wasn’t quite as perfect as yesterday but it was pretty darn nice.  The water wasn’t as calm as yesterday either and there was wind blowing from the south.  I headed south into the wind.  I paddled down into Kam 3 and it was bumpy!  Then I noticed a few white caps forming and turned around.  The wind gave me a push back and just when I reached Kam 1…… The wind backed off!  Figures!   Swimming was nice too…… I was swimming south when I crossed paths with a turtle!  I quickly turned around and swam north with it.  It was pretty friendly swimming under me and to my side.   It came up once right under me looking for some attention!  Then after a while the turtle headed out to sea and I turned around and swam back.  It was just in time for wind to kick back up!  Swimming with the turtle made my day!
