Great Paddling!!

It was a beautiful Labor Day!  I couldn’t wait to get out on my board.  I headed south.  The conditions were good!  Down at the boat ramp I saw four turtles.  Two surfaced together and I cruised up between them.  Suddenly out popped Bumpy out of nowhere!  She must have come straight up from the bottom.  She was in a mood!  She popped up….. Looked at me and then went under the water…. Swimming under my board and coming up on the other side.  Then she did the same thing from that side!  It was like she was playing “hide and seek”!  One more smaller turtle surfaced and then all four turtles disappeared.  I waited for a while but then the wind came up from the south so I headed back.  The water got choppy but at least the wind was pushing me from behind!  My swim was nice too.  I saw lots of little Yellow Tangs, Unicorn fish and Humu Humu fish…. Then whike I swam back…. a turtle cruised by me!   That made five turtles for today….. It was a great day!
