Our theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is: Afloat.
Our instructions: This week, show us what afloat means to you.
Some of you may recognize this handsome devil. I first published him in a blog post I wrote about punching a shark in the face on our trip to the Abacos, Bahamas. I’m not kidding. I punched a shark. In the face. (And that pretty much wrapped it up for me and snorkeling).
This is why I like sea turtles more than sharks. Sea turtles are nice.
I never did get around to taking that marine biology class, but I think this is a green sea turtle — we named him Leo. I took his picture one morning while we were on the boat dock. I couldn’t believe how cooperative he was with having his picture taken (especially with a couple of pre-teen girls standing there squealing, “OMG!! He’s sooooooooooooooooooo cute!!”
And no, we can’t keep him. 😉
