Turtle Day!!

It was a beautiful Summer day today….. but the wind was threatening again.    Today it was pushing from the south creating bumpy swells…… I decided to swim.  I immediately was met by a large female turtle and proceeded to swim with her.   It was a lovely swim….. so peaceful…..and she let me take a video and lots of photos!  I was so excited!  When she headed out to sea….. I swam back and came in.  The wind had backed off and the ocean looked pretty nice for paddling.  It was already 10:30 a.m. But I grabbed my board and paddle and went for it!  It was still bumpy with swells so I knew the wind wasn’t finished yet but I had four turtles surfacing at the point anyway.  Five turtles today!  It was great swimming with the turtle too.  The wind kept moving in and out and it’s still doing that….. maybe tomorrow the wind will cooperate better……
