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.
