sea turtle

For those of us who don’t live in Hawaii, the closest we get to the huge sea turtles is in an aquarium.  When you visit the Hawaiian islands, one of the thrills is to see the huge sea turtles up close and perhaps even get to swim near one.  We were lucky enough to see one and get close enough to snap this picture of a huge sea turtle resting on the black sand beach of the Big Island.

We didn’t get to see any on our last visit to Kauai but they are all around the island, with some of the best viewing spots in the Poipu area on the South Shore of Kauai.
