In Mourning

Since it was a rare sunny day during rainy season, Nathan, Miyuki, and I rode our bikes to the beach this afternoon. Once there we were met with a sad sight - a huge and very dead sea turtle had washed up on shore. It looked like he strangled himself on some rope, died, and then washed up. Further down the beach are dunes where turtles come ashore and lay their eggs. Nathan has plans to take his brother when he comes later this month there late at night to see if they can spot some. Today when we saw this poor thing, he said,"You were worried about not seeing a sea turtle, Jennifer. Now you have." In this case I really wish I hadn't.

Miyuki lays down next to it to show how big it is.
