WHEWWWW what a Zoo!
Ive met alot of people at the bay. "Regulars" we call ourselves. Those of us who just love the bay for one reason or the other,and are there every chance we get. We recently have a new "regular" to the Bay. He is an aspiring actor and uses the bay to swim laps. Everyday he is there, back and forth he swims...
I really enjoy the camaraderie we all share and that bond showed early Monday morning.
As you all know I spend a lot of time at the Bay waiting for the dolphins. All that time has allowed me the privilege of making friends with the turtles that swim in the Bay.
I watched in horror Monday morning as a fisherman hooked one of my turtle friends on his fishing line.
I saw my turtle friend flaying in the water desperately trying to get free. I went running down the beach yelling "YOU hooked a TURTLE!" I was ready to tackle this fisherman right there, render him senseless.
Then I saw another "regular" the aspiring actor throw his goggles and his fins on the sand and start running toward the fisherman.
We were coming at him from both sides!
The fisherman kept his calm amist two very upset "regulars" and
brought the turtle to shore where the hook and line all came out of the turtles mouth.
Free from the hook and line I saw my turtle friend look back at the three of us as he swam away.
The look on his face said" WHEWWW what a ZOO!"
