A rest for a sea turtle
Having been able to see a Green sea turtle swimming gracefully but using a lot of energy hunting in the reef, it is nice when they can have time to rest undisturbed. At Poipu beach the lifeguards put up a rope with a fair amount of space around this turtle which had come up on the sand. It slept for the most part but I had a chance to get a couple of photographs with its eyes open when one of the sounds of a busy beach reached through the slumber. Very beautiful animals.
