Spectacular Turtle Day!!

Wow wow wow!!!!  It was a spectacular day out on the water today!  It started out being windy but by the time I paddled into Kam 2….. The wind completely backed off and it got absolutely  perfect!  Down at the boat ramp I had eleven turtles all to myself!  I got so many photos!  Bumpy was there too being social today and I sat among all the turtles!  I loved it!  I paddled back in glassy perfect conditions and cruised in near the rocks at Kam 2 and watched a turtle swimming below me.  Then as I paddled in….. A turtle was swimming under me too!  What a great turtle day!  If that wasn’t enough turtles…… I swam with a turtle down to the reef!  It was a medium sized female and she surfaced next to me three times looking right at me…… then she swam just under me down to the rocks.  The wind had started to blow again so the water got choppy so I headed back.  Then I had to swim against the wind all the way back……. It was worth it!  I am loving these turtle days lately!
