Talking Turtles

This turtle and I were swimming along today,he wise and quiet, me talking a mile a minute into my snorkel. All of a sudden he dives toward the sand.













Whats he doing ? OH, he sees something to eat! WHATS he got? OMG ITS A BAND-AID discarded by a careless HUMAN!








OH NO YOU DONT! I dive down after him, he picks up the band-aid, I feel sick. In a motion I can only explain as reflex ,I start slapping him on the head. "NONONO" I say. He drops the offending piece of HUMAN trash and looks at me like , LADY I AM ON MY LAST NERVE WITH YOU!!


Feeling rather dumb I say, "Im sorry, but I cant let you eat that". I stuff the band-aid in my suit and swim to shore. I discard it in a rubbish can grumbling about the carelessness of my fellow man.

I think turtles talk to each other...


A couple minutes later I came across another turtle. As soon as he sees me, he sits down in the sand and he doesn't move a muscle! He just stared at me as if to say, "LADY if you SLAP me, IM gonna SMACK YOU!" LOLOL...






I am an island gal.....

I just had a good laugh at your post, but also agrees with you that it is very sad the way we as humans treat nature. Now be careful next time you dive and see a couple of turtles together. They may be lying in wait to ambush you. LOL

On behalf of all the turtles living inside the room of my 23 months old son, I'd like to thank you.

Your welcome Robert! If we are all careful your sons son will be in a world that has healthy turtles !
I have been "away" for a long time but am so glad to be back and I am catching up on all the posts I have missed. This is one of the best I've missed. I still love your blog and the relationship you seem to have with the ocean and its creatures. When I grow up, I am coming to visit you and your wonderful islands.
