Swim With The Turtle
Omar, from my last story, showed J and I a very picturesque passage through the coral back in March 2013. You have to swim in from a certain direction to appreciate it. J remembered this and took David through it. I followed. As J emerged on the other side she suddenly swam upwards. David paused too. I swam into his fins.
And there in front of us was a … hawksbill turtle!!!
I have been diving for over a year… and one, only one time did I see a turtle.
It looked like it was sunning itself. It turned its head slowly from side to side. And then it began a leisurely swim first in toward J and then under David’s fins. I followed and got more shots. We had a fabulous ‘turtle experience.’
If we don’t have another dive together, you could count this among the most special experiences ever!!! … so far.Still warming up and can’t wait to see the images. David shot movies…
