Eight Turtles!!

It was another beautiful Maui day!  I took an early walk as the sun came up and then went swimming.  It’s so calm in the early morning!  I didn’t see any turtles until I went paddling.  It wasn’t windy but the water wasn’t totally calm….. I took that as a warning that the wind was brewing.  I figured I had at least an hour before wind would come up so I headed south for the boat ramp.  I was the only one there and ended up with seven little turtles surfacing!  This is the second day in a row that all the turtles there were little ones.  I’m not sure what that means, if anything, but kind of unusual.  It was a little more choppy paddling back, but I stopped at the point when I spotted another turtle.  That made eight turtles for today!  Then as promised….. the wind did come in……I’m glad I got out early….
