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!

Perfect Day!!

What a gorgeous day!  I had nine turtles this morning and I loved every minute.  It was fairly quiet down at the coral this morning…. maybe people were recovering from Thanksgiving or shopping…. anyway I was really happy for less snorkelers!  I might load my board on my racks and try to go out on the water tomorrow… we’ll see….  I sure hope I can do it!

Thanksgiving Turtles!!

Nine turtles on Thanksgiving!  It was a beautiful day and the turtles were out!  Peekaboo was back in her hiding spot today.  I had a wonderful swim and really enjoyed my turtles!  I still haven’t ventured out on my board …. I think I have some anxiety over wondering if I can manage doing it  (and then there is the pain uncertainty surrounding wrangling my board …)  I hope I can get out there soon.  For now…. I am enjoying swimming with my turtles!

Turtle Days!!

It’s been a great last few days swimming with my turtles!  I had nine in all this morning and I loved it!  The water visibility wasn’t great down by the coral….. but at least good enough to see my turtles.  It has also gotten very windy the last couple of days so I still haven’t attempted to get out in my board.  Soon!!!!

Eleven Turtles!!

Beautiful morning!  A little windy and overcast…… but still nice.  The water is still 81 degrees!  I had eleven turtles to swim with today and I was so happy to see them.  The water got choppy while I swam and then totally backed off on my way back.  I still haven’t attempted to take my board out yet…… hopefully some calm, nice days this week….

Gorgeous Day!!

It was another great turtle morning!  It was so perfect!  There were so many turtles feeding on the rocks.  I enjoyed every minute!  My undersea world is my time out from the world.  I love all my turtles!  The weather just got so comfortable too and the water is still 81 degrees!  It’s been about a year now since our friend Barbara was attacked by a shark near here….. so I’m keeping a good eye out.  It’s been so perfect though! I thoroughly enjoyed my swim too….
