A Close Encounter Of The Turtle Kind

Yesterday in Barbados I had to opportunity to snorkel with sea turtles. These remarkable creatures are protected by law in Barbados with heavy fines for anyone who harms them. They are fun to interact with, not shy especially when offered tidbits of fish, and very photogenic. There had to be almost two dozen of them near our boat...all Green turtles except for one Hawksbill that swam on the bottom but didn't come up to feed and join the visitors (us) to his underwater kingdom.
