Turtle Day!!

What a spectacular beach day!  Much better than yesterday.  I walked the beach until the sun came up and then took off for my swim.   Great swimming conditions!  Then great paddling conditions….. so I took my board out.  I headed south towards the boat ramp.  Really nice conditions!  I spotted a manta ray when passing Kam 3, right under me! I haven’t seen rays for awhile so that was a treat.  Down at the boat ramp there was an outrigger canoe with snorkelers and some stand up paddlers snorkeling off their boards…. and no turtles!  I almost left, but then the others left and the turtles started popping up!  They started coming up in two’s and three’s until I had counted thirteen turtles.  Then two more rays appeared too!  Even Bumpy was out today posing as usual!  At Kam 3…… one more turtle surfaced….. it was so little.  I ended up staying out for an hour and a half!  It was so very nice and I really needed acturtle day too.  Fourteen turtles in all and three manta rays for today!  I hope this is the start of Spring conditions! I loved hanging with my turtle buddies!
