Turtle Day!!

I can’t lie……,despite it being a beautiful morning…..,it was windy.   I went out on my board and hoped the wind would back off and it did!  Just about the time I was passing Kam 3….. the wind suddenly backed off.  It was nice at the boat ramp!  Unfortunately there were two outrigger canoes there from one of the hotels with snorkelers in the water.  One big turtle surfaced and swam in my direction…. but when I tried to get photos of it, the snorkelers were all over it!  Very maddening!  Luckily they left and I was visited by seven more turtles…… all to myself.  It was great!  I got to sit right between two of the turtles too.  I paddled back in nice conditions but no turtles at the point today.  Oh well…. I got nine turtles for the day so I was super happy!  I hope tomorrow is the same…..
