Perfect Paddling & Ten Turtles!!

It was such a gorgeous day following the storm!  After several days of mixed conditions due to a west swell and then a tropical storm from the south …. I was ready for a nice day.  Today delivered just such a day and I was treated to ten lovely turtles too!  Down at the Boat Ramp I shared the turtles with an outrigger canoe with six people snorkeling  off of it.  The canoe was from the Wailea Canoe Club.  One of the guys got chatty with me and he was just as delighted with the turtles as I was!  He kept saying “oh there’s a turtle behind you!”….. And he was right they were all around me!  His passengers got a real treat today!  It was so nice down there I didn’t want to leave.  I paddled back in perfect conditions and during my swim too.  There was a flurry of activity down at the reef with lots of fish….. even baby Puffer fish!  Despite the stormy weather….the water visibility is excellent!  I left the beach about noon and it was still perfect.  Just one of those rare days when the wind didn’t roar in and it just stayed perfect!  I want more of this please!
