Three Lovely Turtles!!

It was a colorful start to my day!  Clouds always create such a pretty sunrise.  Then I went paddling with wind blowing from the East.  I paddled in choppy conditions down halfway past Kam 3 and then turned around.  It was a workout!  The wind wasn’t letting up.  Just after I came in…….. the wind backed off!    Figures!  I swam south in the direction of the wind until a turtle appeared in front of me.  I turned around quickly to swim with the turtle.  It was just cruising!  She was very friendly…..swimming right next to me!  We swam together almost to the end of Charley Young Beach.  On my way back….. another female turtle swam past me heading north!  Then a big male turtle swam past me heading north!  Three turtles in one swim….heaven!  It wasn’t long before the tradewinds roared in and I got a boost the rest of the way back.  What a nice day!
