At Home

How do you make a nervous sea turtle feel at home?

You rub under his little chin until he calms down. Works every time.

Of course he is happiest when he is back in the water with his buds. Righteous...

I went to the Turtle Farm on Grand Cayman Islands recently. You think baby turtles are cute? No, you have to see them in person to grasp the full power of their cuteness, you will be rendered helpless!

(The image is a rubber stamp I made for my daughter's birthday a few years ago. I printed them and hung them with raffia and blue streamers. There was a birthday cake that involved vanilla wafer sand and chocolate turtles returning to the ocean!)

He is so beautiful! How wonderful to be close to them and pet them. I love the colors of the turtles and water on the last picture too :o)

I loved them. The giant turtles were amazing too. They were 4-5 feet long!
