Turtle walk

One afternoon at sunset we participated in a wonderful activity that gave us the opportunity to help baby turtles walk from the shore where they had recently hatched, to the water, where they would begin their ocean life.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...

Henry connected with a local lady and helped bring slower turtles back to the protection area since they didn't make it to the water themselves.  They'll be released another day when they are stronger. 
It's always good to see the children use their Spanish to engage with locals!


  1. Love It! We sure miss those days... Have fun and hopefully we will see you in Baja this summer...
