A Family of Turtles
I took a swim this morning in my backyard (I live on the beach) waiting to see my little family of turtles. I think it is a Mommy and her two babies, but maybe it’s a Dad. They have been living in the ocean behind my house for at least the past 8 years. They are such curious wonderful creatures. They don’t see very well, so they swim up very close to get a good look. I used to get really scared when they would pop up right in front of me.
So today, I just floated and tried not make to any movement at all – just let the waves carry me. Well Momma turtle decided today was the day that she would give me a little nudge. I was amazed – I have never had one actually touch me before. I am not sure if she was telling me to get out of her space, or just letting me know she knew I was there. Whatever her reasons, it was exhilarating!
