Shortly after i took this picture, a young woman swam up to this turtle grabbed a hold of it and tried to ride the turtle. I lifted my head out of the water and said. "WHY, did you do that?" she said, "DO WHAT?" "Ride the turtle". I said.
"OH", she said. "Its alright, its just a turtle". I said to her,"NO, its NOT alright, that little turtle had just 3 fins" I proceeded to tell her if she could not respect an injured animal, maybe she should not have children.
My daughter says i have become radical in my older years. I am afraid i have to agree. I don't want to be mean or ugly, BUT i want to stand up for what is right and what is wrong.
AS i see it this planet has moved forward amazingly quick. We as humans have all the gadgets, all the knowledge but we have forgotten to bring with us one important thing... RESPECT.
The cave at the Bay.. i am no longer swimming in it alone!
The turtles have arrived! They enjoy the vegetation growing on the rock walls this time of year!
Thought you might enjoy a video of me and a turtle going in and out of the cave.. he handles the tides much better than I ! The water is slightly cloudy from the tide and waves stirring up the sand and ocean vegatation.
I consider it a high honor when a turtle lifts his head out of the water for a breath of air in my presence. To do this, they must take their eyes OFF me. They tell me they trust me when they do this.
