Turtle Morning!!

The morning sky was pink and purple today!  Then clouds moved in and the sun struggled to come out.  It was great for walking and swimming though!  I swam down to the coral and spotted a turtle hiding under a ledge.  I swam around waiting for the turtle to come up and saw a big Moray eel!  I could see its teeth!  Then a Barracuda swam by too….. then the turtle decided to come up.  The turtle swam around me as I took photos and then brushed up against me.  It came up twice like that.  Then….. two more turtles swam into the area!  I got to swim with them too!  Finally… one more turtle showed up and was heading north so I went north with it!  Wow…. FOUR friendly turtles in one morning!  I was in turtle heaven.  When I got back…. I was exhausted and cold ….. and since I stayed extra long with the turtles, it was too late to go Paddling.  Oh well…. maybe tomorrow….
