Turtle Day!!

Yes ……yes it was a gorgeous day!  Calm conditions and glassy water for paddling!!  I headed down to the boat ramp.  When I arrived, there were two tourists snorkeling.  The man kept diving down to harass the turtles!  Luckily that didn’t stop the turtles ftom coming up.  Three turtles surfaced right away and one of them was Bumpy for sure!  She posed as usual and came right to me.  I think she likes it when I talk to her.  Two more turtles popped up and that was five turtles for the boat ramp.  I paddled back in nice conditions ( no wind yet!) and cruised by the rocks between Kam 1 & 2.  I spotted a turtle closer in but so did the snorkelers.  Then a turtle  appeared under my board and was swimming north so I followed it.  I cruised with it past the lifeguard tower and through a group of excited tourists.  Then I paddled back and came in.  That made seven turtles in all for today!  My swim was nice too and the water clarity is improving finally.  What a great day!
