Seven Turtles Today!!

Five days in a row out Paddling with turtles!!!!  I can’t believe it.  I first walked the beach and watched the sun make its way out of the clouds….. then I went swimming.  The water is staying pretty clear for the moment.  The wind started to come up while I was swimming and it kept coming in and out.  I went Paddling anyway.  The water was surprisingly bumpy.  I could only imagine that the wind was much stronger out farther and generating the bumpy swells, but I almost didn’t stay out.  It was clear that I wasn’t about to trust the wind!  I ended up staying out and hoping the ocean would get calmer ( it happened that way the past couple of days…) but it wasn’t backing off. I did get seven turtles at the point though and got photos!  I was glad for that.  Then just TOO MANY snorkelers started to arrive so I headed back.  It was still a very nice day and Paddling five days in a row?  Well that is terrific!
