Sea Turtles

We spent several days on the coast of South Carolina last week near Charleston. One afternoon as we were walking on the beach at Isle of Palms, we noticed a crowd of people. We walked over to see what was going on and discovered they were releasing five sea turtles that had been injured back to the sea. It was wonderful watching these turtles head directly to the water as soon as they were placed on the beach. There were two loggerheads, two green sea turtles and a Kemp's Ridley which is the most endangered sea turtle. I tried to get pictures but they kept us too far back. I was able to capture a picture one of the Loggerheads. It is wonderful what the staff at The South Carolina Sea Aquarium is able to accomplish with injured sea life.

Those turtles are huge.  Must have been a sight to see.

I think it is fantastic. Wish I could have gotten pictures of the other turtles.

That was quite an luckily day to be visting the beach. I adopted an endanagerd sea turtle when I was in in elementary school, like to think it helped at least one have a better life.
