Turtles!!!!!!!

It’s been so beautiful….. but the wind has been so unpredictable….I went out paddling but turned around at the end of Kam 2.  There were lots of loopy swells to paddle over which led me to believe the wind might come up soon.  By the time I went swimming…… the wind had blown in with a fury!  I swam south and then turned around because it was so choppy.  On my way back……. a turtle was heading right for me so I turned around to swim south again.  It was a friendly turtle and I got lots of photos and videos!  It was a bit difficult swimming in the choppy conditions and trying to photograph….. but I got some great shots!  Then the turtle swam into water with no visibility so I turned around.  Just as I arrived back where I started…… a wind wave knocked my mask and snorkel out of my hand!  I saw it for a brief second…… then it disappeared.  I thought it was gone for good!  Then I suddenly saw it again and grabbed it with my feet and brought it up.  I hope the choppy conditions ease up soon….I need a perfect day!

Beautiful Day!!

It’s been a beautiful last two days…… unpredictable wind and some Bumpy paddling but the water is very clear and nice!  I only saw one turtle out paddling today and swimming was nice.   I photographed fish and coral today…. no turtles.  Every day can’t be an epic turtle day!  Maybe tomorrow?

Swimming With Turtles!!

It was a gorgeous Maui day!  I paddled down halfway into Kam 3 and then turned around after seeing some white caps forming.  I paddled back and hung out close to shore at the point where I visited with three turtles!  Then while swimming/snorkeling I ended up swimming with five turtles and getting some great photos and a couple of videos! I am really enjoying this underwater camera!  It’s my new obsession!

Six Turtles Today!!

I got a late start today…… but it was still nice!  I paddled down to Kam 3 and turned around.   I decided to paddle closer to the rocks at Kam 2 and I’m glad I did!   Six turtles came up to visit…… even a tiny turtle!  My swim was great too with greatly improving  water visibility.  I hope for more of the same tomorrow…….

Twenty Turtles!

Wow!  What a turtle day it was yesterday! Despite the hovering Vog ….. I paddled down to the boat ramp where I was immediately surrounded by five turtles.   Then more turtles and it was a party!  I quit counting after twenty turtles!  They were popping up everywhere.  Then a snorkel boat showed up and interrupted the turtle flow…… I was annoyed!  But then I heard one of the tourists say “I think we disturbed the turtles because they were all around her”…… then the boat suddenly kept going and didn’t stay.  Thank you observant tourist!  As soon as the boat motored away…… the turtles began to pop up again!  It was a great turtle day.  My swim was nice too…….
