Over Twenty Turtles!!

Oh wow….. what a gorgeous day for paddling and swimming!  It could not have been nicer.  The wind cooperated and didn’t start coming in until noon so lots of people were paddling, kayaking and swimming today.  As soon as I started to paddle out ….two turtles appeared underneath me.  Then a big turtle surfaced by me just as I was passing the point!  So three turtles before I even got past Kam 1!  It was super nice conditions all the way down to the boat ramp.  I was early enough to miss the snorkel boats but there was a tourist couple there out on a kayak taking turns snorkeling.  There were so many turtles!  I was surrounded twice by six turtles and the rest were just popping up like jack in the boxes.  I got a bunch of photos.  I lost count on how many turtles there were today….. but there were more than twenty of them for sure!  Swimming was really nice too and the water is so clear right now.  I didn’t see any turtles while swimming but I had already had so many turtles…..  I hope tomorrow is just as nice as today!
