Swimming up to the Surface

On my birthday, I was snorkeling at Kaneohe Bay.There were a lot of turtles at the reef. Unfortunately, my camera was on my boat. I swam back to my boat to get my camera.

When I got back to the reef, I searched for the turtle for a few minutes. After a few minutes of unsuccessful searching, I turned back. As I turned around, I looked down at the reef. I just barely saw a turtle resting below some coral. It was around twenty feet deep.

I took a deep breath. I swam under as quickly as I could. As my ears popped, I took pictures. The turtle decided to come up to breath. As it approached the surface, I took this picture of the turtle looking at me.

This experience was one of the best parts of my birthday.
