Windy Turtle Day!!

Yes….. it’s been windy…… and early.  I finally decided that I would need to get out swimming and Paddling before ten o’clock.  I took a beach walk with wrist weights on while the sun came up over the mountain.  It was a beautiful morning!  Then I took off for my swim.  I swam for awhile before I spotted a turtle swimming towards me.  The turtle hung out for a few minutes and I got video and photos!  After it moved out to sea….. I was heading back when another turtle was heading in my direction!  That turtle was just hanging out too.  Then it also headed out to sea so I came in.  What a great way to start the day!  The wind was still threatening but I took my board out anyway.  I figured I had at least an hour before the white caps moved in but when I got down to the boat ramp…… I wasn’t so sure!  One turtle surfaced and then I paddled back against some wind and chop.  I stopped at the point and had three turtles visit me.  One annoying tourist guy kept swimming after the turtles causing them to hide.  I wanted to say something!  Fortunately I did get some turtle photos.  Right after I came in from Paddling….. suddenly the wind backed off but it only lasted for about twenty minutes!  I hope the wind patterns get back to normal soon….
