Fabulous Paddling Day!!

What a fabulous day!  Totally not expected ……..but throughly savored from beginning to end.  The ocean was perfect and glassy and I was overwhelmed with joy!  Of course I headed straight for the boat ramp and prayed the wind would cooperate.  It was pure joy paddling today!  When I arrived at the boat ramp the snorkel bost was getting ready to leave….. Good timing.  I hoped the turtles would come up soon because I wasn’t sure how long to trust the wind.  My first turtle surfaced behind me alerting me with its exhale!  I turned around and was so happy to see it!  Then a smaller turtle surfaced in front of me.   Pretty soon three turtles popped up around me creating a turtle triangle with me in the middle!  I loved it so much.  Five lovely turtles today!  I decided not to tempt fate and headed back.  Just as I began to pass Kam 2 beach the wind stsrted to creep in.   By the time I made it back to Kam 1…. It was getting windy but not too bad….. Yet.  It was still pretty nice when I went for my swim but just as I got back, I could see white caps already pretty close in.  The ocean is a perfect 80 degrees!  Soon the wind made it all the way in and started blowing sand around.   Well it was incredibly perfect until then!  But I’ll take it…… And be grateful……
