Paddling & Turtles!!

Finally a super nice day! The wind cooperated and everything!  Lovely sunrise and beach walk and a great swim in perfect conditions.  Then it stayed nice and I got out Paddling too!  I first paddled north with a couple of Paddling friends and we saw two large Rays hanging near the ocean bottom.  Then I turned around and paddled south.  I ran into a turtle swimming north so I turned to paddle with it for a few minutes.  Then I paddled back and hung around at the point where two small turtles surfaced and a few more were hiding at the reef under the water.  Three women were swimming and diving down at them…. so no wonder they were hiding out!  Then one of the friends I was with earlier showed up and we decided to take a chance and paddle down to the boat ramp.  It was so nice down there and I had one turtle come up to visit.  Then we decided to not tempt the wind and paddled back.  It was still very nice.  We ran into a turtle right outside Kam 2 and then another small turtle at the point on the way back.  That was about six turtles for today!  It stayed so nice I didn’t want to come in!  It was still nice conditions when I left the beach too.  It was just an all around nice day!  I hope it’s the same tomorrow…….
