Turtle Day!!

I swam first today.   It was a lovely swim but no turtles hanging out today.  So, I headed out paddling before the wind came up.  I paddled south and came across a turtle while passing Kam 3.  Despite the ocean being a bit bumpy…. it was beautiful out on the water!  The bumps must have been generated by the wind way out there…. warning of what was to come.  Nine turtles came up to visit me and posed for some photos!  I had them all to myself ….. the bonus to paddling that early is I miss the snorkeling boat that ends up there.  That’s a good bonus!  It was still bumpy paddling back …. but I paddled past the point and spotted three little turtles hanging by the rocks closer to shore.  That made thirteen turtles for today!  I hope it’s good conditions tomorrow too….it was great seeing the turtles….
