Swimming With a Turtle

Beautiful sunrise sky and nice day.  The ocean was calm too!  By the time I got back down to the beach, though, the wind was threatening.  I decided to just swim today.  It was choppy! It was overcast so visibility wasn’t as good but I saw fish.  I swam almost to the end of Charley Young beach and on my way back I ran across a turtle swimming north.  I turned around and swam with it for a while .  I was so happy to see a turtle!  Sadly it had a tumor on its right front flipper…… I really hate seeing that.  I hope tomorrow is a Paddling day!
