TURTLE DAY!!

I have been waiting weeks for a day like today!  It was spectacular!  I walked the beach early before the sun came up and then went for a nice swim.  The water is so clear right now!  The wind finally cooperated today and it was quite a Paddling day with eighteen turtles total at the boat ramp!  A snorkeling boat was there with people in the water.  I figured the turtles were hiding but I did see four turtles surfacing.  Then the boat left and it was so peaceful at the boat ramp.  The turtles started to pop up like little jack in the boxes…. fourteen of them!  Many of them smaller, younger turtles….. but suddenly a big turtle surfaced and swam right over to my board…..then I recognized it…. it was Bumpy!!!!   Wow….. I haven’t seen her in weeks.  She posed for me as she usually does so I got great photos!  I sat between two turtles….. and even got surrounded by  a turtle triangle.  I loved every minute!  The nice conditions prevailed on my way back and it stayed SO nice.  Please let me have another day like this tomorrow!!! Please!

Beautiful Morning!!

When I got up this morning….it wasn’t windy.  I hurried down to the beach and walked before the sun came up.  The water looked so nice….. I couldn’t wait to swim!  And such clear water!  I swam and swam but no turtles came by today.  I was anxious to come in and go Paddling and I heard the lifeguard announcing that some paddlers were too close to a whale!  Then I really wanted to go out on my board!  I heard there were three whales out there!  Well no sooner did I come in from swimming…. the wind started up…. again. It’s just not worth it to me to get everything out and then struggle with the wind.  Maybe tomorrow the wind will cooperate……

Turtles!!

Beautiful…. but windy morning.  The wind has been so chilly!  I walked the beach until the sun came up and then headed out for my swim.  The water is warmer than the air!  No kidding!  I had a great swim.  Yesterday I got to swim with two lovely turtles and today I watched two fish harassing a crab!  It’s great to be back out in the water,  finally.  As soon as this wind normalizes ….. I might be able to get back out Paddling.   I sure hope it’s soon!

Breezy Morning!!

Beautiful….. but breezy morning.  I walked the beach until the sun popped up over the mountain.  It was chilly!  I went for a swim and swam with two turtles!  I was so happy to see them!  It was warmer in the water this morning.  This wind is so chilly! I’m waiting for a nicer day of conditions to go out Paddling …..
