Swimming Buddy!!

It was a beautiful morning!  A bit breezy…. but I was happy to be at the beach.  I walked first and then hurried to swim because I could already see the white caps looming and the wind would come in soon enough.  The water was pretty choppy and that created shadows under the water…… I don’t like shadows under the water!  I had a great swim and near the end….. a lovely turtle surprised me by surfacing right under me.  I had to move out of the way quickly!  I managed to get one good photo of the turtle right under me.  I was so happy to see a turtle!  I swam north with it for awhile and then turned south.  I was able to coast back thanks to the wind!  Not a good day for Paddling…. but maybe tomorrow…..
