Swimming With A Turtle!

image It sure was a beautiful day today and yesterday……. But this wind has been so unpredictable.  Yesterday I just didn’t trust it…… So I just swam.  Today the wind wanted to play games!  I prepared to get my board down twice….. And both times the wind kicked up and there were even white caps!  Then it would back off.  Finally I said enough games!  And took off for a swim.  The ocean feels so good!  I headed north in case the wind came up again and five minutes into swimming….. A turtle showed up!  I quickly turned around to swim with the turtle.  The turtle swam right up under me twice……and then to my right side.  Together we swam between two tourist guys!  I don’t think they had a clue!  After a few minutes the turtle headed out to sea and I continued down to the reef.  It was not as clear down there but I saw numerous Unicorn fish and a Rainbow fish.  When I swam back…the wind was still playing games!  Oh well at least it blew the hazy skies clear.  I’m still hoping the wind patterns get back on track soon……..
