Turtle Day!!

It started out looking pretty stormy….. but no rain today.  It was overcast which made good conditions for a beach walk.  The sun struggled all day to come out and never fully emerged.  It was good conditions for swimming too and I saw fish and a large Puffer fish cruise by me.  The ocean conditions seemed to be staying good… so I grabbed my board and went Paddling!  Yay!  It was surprisingly bumpy though…. not nearly as calm as it looked.  I didn’t trust that the wind would cooperate so I opted to stay close by.  Luckily…. I ended up with seven turtles at the point!  I was happily paddling with a big turtle…. when a friend passed me and said the wind line was moving in.  I was focused on my turtle buddy and didn’t notice the ocean surface changing but then I realized my friend was right!  I had to ditch my turtle and paddle back… bummer.  I got in just as the wind gusts were starting but managed to get my board secured up on my racks safely.  I really thought it was getting windy…. and then a short time later, the wind backed off and it actually got very nice.  I hope tomorrow is another good Paddling day….
