Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat

The right wine for you- 6 bottles for just $34.99!

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.  😉
