Just Beautiful!!

Swimming has been great!  The water visibility has been good too.  Yesterday I had about sixteen turtles… all feeding on the rocks ….. but today only TWO turtles.  It was good because I had them all to myself and I know both turtles well.  I got smart and wore one of my Paddling sun shirts to keep me warmer….. and it really helped!  I miss Paddling a lot so I am hoping for a nice calm day this week so I  can attempt to get my board out all by myself.  The back injection seems to be helping… so we will see.  Swimming is pretty great, though, and of course….I love my undersea world!

Beautiful Day!!

Nice turtle day!  Sixteen turtles in all.  The first turtle I spotted was swimming north. I turned to swim with it for a few minutes.  Down at the coral I had about ten turtles!  Most of the turtles were feeding by the rocks and entertaining me with their acrobatic moves!  It was great.  Then, in my swim back…. a few more turtles were feeding near the big Kiawe tree in the shallow water.  Then…. on the rest of the way back…one more big turtle was hanging near the bottom in very shallow water!  What a great day!

Turtle Morning!!

It was a beautiful… but windy morning.  I knew Paddling was out even if my husband was there to help me… but I could swim!  It was choppy!  The turtles and I were getting shoved around but the water visibility was pretty good.  I had a total of seven turtles today!  Just as I started my swim back….. the wind backed off and it was a nice swim back…..

Ten Lovely Turtles!!

It was a super nice day on Maui today!  Just a little bit of Big Island Vog has drifted over…. but not too bad.  I had ten turtles to swim with today….. and it was great!  I hope tomorrow is just as nice…

Beautiful Day!!

Swimming has been great!  Today was an exceptionally nice day with the wind waiting until afternoon to come up.  After swimming I really wanted to take my board out….. but no one I knew was around to help me.  Darn!  I had seven turtles to swim with today!  I found the little baby turtle close to shore…. just hanging out.  It’s the cutest little thing!  I hope the weather stays nice…..

Beautiful Day!!

I couldn’t have asked for a nicer overall day.  Sunny and calm water…. even if the water visibility still isn’t great.  At least I could see my turtles!  About twenty turtles all feeding near the shoreline!  The turtle acrobatics kept me entertained and I enjoyed every minute of it.  The swim was great too.  No paddling today even though it was so perfect…… with no one to help me.  I’m trying to keep my board on my car just in case I get to go out….. I know I could get down to the beach and paddling I can do, it’s the carrying my board back up the beach, rinsing it and hoisting it back up on my racks that Im not sure about.  Oh well…..

Turtle Days!!

It was a breezy morning and it has barely let up all day.  Yesterday was such a perfect day and I even was able to go out on my board!  Today was a different story.  Windy and choppy conditions prevailed and the water visibility was limited.  The turtles and I were getting tossed around!  I had four turtles today and I’m glad I could see them in that mostly cloudy water. The swim back was a struggle.  I hope this little blip in conditions doesn’t last too long!
