Nice Paddling, Shark Sighting and Turtle Comes Onshore!!

Beautiful sunrise today…… nice day for paddling!  I just started out for a nice swim and the lifeguards told everyone to get out if the water!  Apparently some paddlers spotted a Hammerhead shark by the rocks, so they closed the beach.   Then….. a big turtle lumbered up on the beach!   The turtle looked  like my “Bumpy” too!  The tourists went nuts!   The turtle was still there at sunset……and I heard through the island grapevine that the beach will be closed until 1:00 in the afternoon on Thanksgiving day.  There goes my Thanksgiving day paddle!
