Windy Surprise!!

It was a beautiful sunrise!  The mornings are nice and cool….. I’m happy that it’s Fall!  The strange thing was that it was windy early.   The wind first blew from the north ….. then it turned and started blowing from the south.  I almost just decided to just swim but suddenly the wind backed off and it got surprisingly nice!  By then it was almost ten o’clock!  I grabbed my board and went out.  Wow it was nice so I headed south towards the boat ramp.  When I got down there, one of my paddling friends was there.  We chatted for awhile and saw one turtle ….. but the pontoon snorkel boat cruised in and went right over the turtle!  Luckily it surfaced again!  The boat had a lot of tourists on it ready to jump into the water so we left.  As we passed Kam 3…… another large turtle popped up!  The conditions stayed nice all the way back too.  My swim was nice too.   I saw a little Puffer fish, Rainbow fish,  lots of Yellow Tangs, a big Trumpet fish and some Humu Humu fish.  The water clarity was better than yesterday.  The wind didn’t come in until noon!  I hope it’s nice again tomorrow……
