Another day out in the boat 🙂 .   The goal was just to pudder around in the boat, find a nice secluded spot and go for a swim.    But we ended up with an additional bonus.

It being a week day the boat traffic was much lower then it was when we were out the other day.   As a result, the turtles came out to play.   When I lived here, never seen a turtle.  About 5 years ago, I started seeing the odd one here and there around the island.   Now they have made an amazing rebound and I see them almost everywhere.

I was fortunate last year to swim with turtles on the great barrier reef, Jen never had that pleasure until yesterday.   What a beautiful day and a wonderful way to spend the day.
