Turtle Day!!

After a stormy-like day yesterday as Hurricane Fernanda passed by us….. it was nice to get a sunny day for today.  I paddled in good conditions down to the boat ramp.  My first turtle surfaced as I was paddling past Kam 3…… then four friendly turtles at the boat ramp!  On my way back, another small turtle popped up at the point as I passed.  I was excited to have six turtles!  Conditions were so calm!  I swam south since the current seemed to going that way and on my way back…… a very small turtle darted past me!  I turned to swim south with it and got a photo and a video but that little bugger out swam me!  Then a larger turtle appeared also swimming south so off so went with it.  I got a bunch of photos and a couple of videos of that turtle!  I swam with the turtle until it veered out to sea and then I came in.   I was exhausted!  Well…. that made eight turtles for today!  It was a great day for turtles……my favorite buddies…..
