Epic Turtle Day!!

Just wow!  Another nice paddling day.  It was not quite as calm as yesterday…. but nice enough!  I paddled down to the boat ramp and I was the only person there.  I almost thought no turtles were showing up but then the show began just for me!  Seven turtles visited me there and then one more at the point.  Then I went swimming.   Thankfully the wind cooperated!  I was about done with my swim when a turtle showed up swimming south.  Of course I turned around to swim with it!  I got a short video but the turtle was out-swimming me!  Suddenly it got interested in a clump of seaweed and dove down.  Then another, bigger turtle showed up and the two turtles touched noses in a “turtle kiss”!  It was so cute and I got a photo to prove it.  The two turtles swam around me as I took a bunch of pictures of them.   At one point I was trying to take a photo of turtle #1…… and turtle #2 ran right into me brushing me with its fin!  I got a photo of that too!  This play session went on for some time and I got some amazing photos.  I was so exhausted when I swam back!  What an amazing turtle day!  I am loving this underwater camera……
