Turtle 2.0

One of the best places we stopped was the beach with the sea turtles. I think it was Laniakea beach on the North Shore.
These turtles are huge. Much bigger than I have ever expected.


Turtles are a protected species and there is a group of volunteers that sit on the beach to watch the turtles and make sure that the tourists keep thier distance. I like to think of these people as turtle babysitters. The turtle babysitter that was there when we visited looked a lot like Greg Brady.
The turtle babysitters keep logs of which turtles are basking in the sun and what they are doing. 3 of the turtles have antennas attached to them for tracking purposes.
I like to call this one Turtle 2.0.
