Turtle Encounter!!

What a morning!  The Vog was still hanging about and Lanai was nowhere to be seen.  The sun came out though so that was good!  I walked and then went swimming.  It was a lovely swim!  I swam down to the point and spotted a turtle that I thought was sleeping under a coral shelf.   Then two tourists with a GoPro came by so then I knew the turtle was hiding!  I didn’t want to give away the hiding spot so I swam away from the turtle!  After the couple moved on….. I swam back.  I was enjoying the coral and fish when all of a sudden…. the turtle came swimming up to me!  It came right to my face and got so close that it was tricky trying to take photos and a video.  It swam all around me and then dove down and retreated to its hiding place.  Wow!  The turtle chose to come visit me!  It was amazing!  That little encounter made my day….. I didn’t even go Paddling today…..
