Turtle Morning!!

Beautiful morning!  I did a beach walk until the sun came up over the mountain …. then I went swimming.  I was near the end of my swim when a female turtle approached me.  I swam with her for awhile getting lots of photos and video!  Then she headed out to sea, so I headed in.  I had already taken all my gear off….and a turtle swam right past me!  I threw on my mask and snorkel and just hung on to my fins and swam in the turtle’s  direction.  All of a sudden a much larger turtle popped into view and I started filming the two of them seeming to be playing!  What a treat!  The larger turtle moved north and the smaller turtle was just hanging around.  Wow…. I got lucky with clear water and three lovely turtles!!!!
