More Turtles!!

It was another beautiful Maui day!  I paddled down to the boat ramp and only a few snorkelers were there but no boats. I was greeted by three turtles right away!  Then two more turtles joined us and I was surrounded!  One of the turtles was Bumpy!  Bumpy was hanging right next to me posing for photos.  Soon a kayak arrived with a tourist couple on it.  They were very excited by all the turtles and yelled “Hey….. you are surrounded”!  I said I sure am and told them about Bumpy.   They asked me if I was the “turtle whisperer”….. so I told them I had been called that a few times.  The couple took lots of photos and the turtles kept posing!  I counted about a dozen turtles for today!  It was so beautiful out on the water but suddenly the waters surface started to change.  I feared the wind was coming in early so I left the turtles and paddled back.  Just as I was passing Kam 3…… in came the wind!  The water got choppy and white caps appeared.  It was a lot of work paddling the rest of the way back!  It was a choppy swim too.  I swam north into the wind and then road  it back.  I hope the wind doesn’t come in early tomorrow…….
