Seven Turtles!!

It was a beautiful morning!   Lots of sunshine and the wind was cooperating.  I walked the beach and then headed out for my swim.  I watched an eel squiggle it’s way into a hole in the coral!  Then I went Paddling too.  I didn’t 100% trust the wind after yesterday but there were plenty of turtles to hang out with at the point today!  Seven of them in all.  I was horrified when I saw a turtle start to surface by a tourist lady and she yells “look at this big turtle!” and proceeds to pound the turtle!  I screamed at her to move away from it!  I don’t understand people….. it’s like they don’t get it that this is a REAL live sea turtle!  Ugggh.  I paddled north for a while and then headed in.  But as I caught this little wave in…… I jumped off my board as I usually do…. and didn’t realize how shallow it was and fell over onto my left hip!  That HURT and then I had sand everywhere you really don’t want sand!  Bummer!  Well…. I hope it’s nice again tomorrow……
