Stormy and a Turtle!!

Yes it was another windy, stormy looking morning.  I wasn’t sure if it was going to rain or not….. but I decided to stay. I walked the beach and didn’t hold out much hope that the sun wound make it out.  The sun tried and finally did come out a little, so I headed out for my swim.  The water was so clear and swimming was wonderful!  I saw a lot of fish and towards the end of my swim…a turtle appeared heading north!  I swam with it for awhile and got photos.  Then the turtle headed out to sea and I came in.  The wind was so cold…oh my….. we are not used to this cold wind!  I stuck around to see if the wind might back off…..but that didn’t happen.  The sun came out again for about half an hour tops …… and then it got chilly again.  I’m so glad I did swim….. it’s always a great day when I get to hang out with turtles!  Paddling will come on another day….. soon  I hope….
