I have been waiting weeks for a day like today!  It was spectacular!  I walked the beach early before the sun came up and then went for a nice swim.  The water is so clear right now!  The wind finally cooperated today and it was quite a Paddling day with eighteen turtles total at the boat ramp!  A snorkeling boat was there with people in the water.  I figured the turtles were hiding but I did see four turtles surfacing.  Then the boat left and it was so peaceful at the boat ramp.  The turtles started to pop up like little jack in the boxes…. fourteen of them!  Many of them smaller, younger turtles….. but suddenly a big turtle surfaced and swam right over to my board…..then I recognized it…. it was Bumpy!!!!   Wow….. I haven’t seen her in weeks.  She posed for me as she usually does so I got great photos!  I sat between two turtles….. and even got surrounded by  a turtle triangle.  I loved every minute!  The nice conditions prevailed on my way back and it stayed SO nice.  Please let me have another day like this tomorrow!!! Please!
