We just finished our 3rd day at the beach here in Hawaii, and I can't even believe how many turtles we have seen. When we first came 2 years ago, Jared and I paid to go on a snorkeling trip where we saw ZERO turtles. It wasn't until Jared started exploring and asking that we actually found turtles right off of the local beaches that you just drive to! So, no more paying hundreds of dollars for snorkeling tours in Hawaii for us... I have my very own built in Hawaiian tour guide and his name is Jared Lemons.
Anyways, every afternoon we can walk out of our backdoor to these black rocks. There are tons of turtles eating in that area. Incredible!
We actually didn't see any turtles in this spot, but Joelle sure looked cute!
Our little snorkeling crew...
And the turtles... oh how we love the turtles!!!
We don't know about all of this, but Joelle thought it was cool! A very nice and experienced scuba-man brought this to us and said it was safe to touch. We just trusted him and Joelle isn't hurt, so all is well :)
Jared likes to get up close and personal with the turtles...
We found a spot today where the turtles were swimming ALL OVER THE PLACE! There were literally dozens of them right off of the shore.
This picture is one of my favorites because it shows just how large these guys actually are!
We still have quite a few days left here, but I'll try not to bore you with the hundreds of turtle pictures that we take over the next week. And, I will continue to remain BEHIND the camera because I'm not all about swimsuit pictures of myself!
