Two Turtles!!

Wow!  The day started out so perfect!   Perfect paddling conditions all the way down to the boat ramp!  Then just about the time I arrived…… so did the wind.  I watched it for a few minutes and decided I did not want to take the chance of getting caught in the wind!  The wind was blowing from the south so luckily I got a boost back to Kam 1.  Shortly after I came in…… the wind backed off of course!  By the time I went swimming, the wind had picked up again.  I took my camera out with me anyway….. just in case I ran into turtles.  The water visibility was marginal so I wasn’t sure if I could get any good pictures….. but I decided to try.  Lucky for me…. turtle #1 came along and I got a video and pictures!  Then turtle #2 showed up and I got a video and pictures of that one too.  The first turtle was a male with the longest tail!  The second turtle was a female.   I was overjoyed to get to swim with, and photograph TWO turtles!  Soon the wind changed directions and became trade winds and then didn’t let up.  The day turned out much better than I had expected!
