Gorgeous Day!!

It could not have been nicer!  Just gorgeous and perfect paddling.  Some people thought I was nuts going out on my board after the recent shark attack….. but hey….. the sharks are out there and always have been!  The water was super clear and I could see down to the bottom of the ocean.  Down by Kam 3, I could see so many fish swimming around!  I stopped short of continuing down to the boat ramp because I was later due to a conversation with one of the lifeguards.  The conditions were great!  I paddled back and still not too many people were venturing out into the water.  I understand their fear though.  I swam much closer to shore than usual and found myself really looking around!  I was swimming south and ran across a baby turtle zipping along so I swam to catch up. When we reached the reef ….. the little turtle turned around and then hung around with me!   I think by the time we reached the reef…. it felt safer and mellowed out.  Lots of places to hide if need be….the water felt wonderful!
