Windy Day!!

The day started out pretty nice.  It was calm for a while but soon the wind came up blowing from the south-east.  I wanted to go out paddling….. so I did.  I always hope the wind is going to back off…… but halfway into Kam 3, it wasn’t.  I decided to turn around and it was a good decision …. the wind changed direction!  I was glad I was almost back.  By the time I went swimming….. it was choppy!  I swam against the wind and then turned around and was almost back when the turtle appeared below me!  It was a beautiful female and she came so close to me.  I was able to get a video and lots of photos!  I was exhausted!  Swimming with the turtle made my day……..I loved every minute …
