Lucky With Wind!!

The day started out windy but it backed off and got perfect.  I paddled to the boat ramp and four turtles surfaced all around me!  I was surrounded!  I sat there enjoying it and taking photos.  One of the turtles was Bumpy!  I’m always happy to see that turtle.  Then the turtle baby started popping up and down!  I’ve been seeing this little one several times here so today it got a name….”Rascal”.  It’s very fast but today I captured a photo of it!  After the five turtles…..I decided to paddle back because I wasn’t  sure about the wind.  Just as I was passing Kam 3…… Another turtle surprised me! Then at Kam 2  I paddled in closer to the rocks and spotted a turtle.  Unfortunately two tourists snorkeling were surrounding it and harassing it!  I hate seeing that.  Oh well.  After I came in the wind started blowing from the north this time.  I could not have timed it more perfectly!  Lucky! But when I went for my swim….. the wind backed off again and I had a great swim.  Lucky again!  I hope I will be this lucky tomorrow…..
