Turtle Bay

Green Sea Turtle | Fading AmericansSerene

black and green suspended here in this sublime saline

fins float back and forth, stealthy propellers

heads bobbing just barely above the Pacific’s serenely surging surface

Quiet and calm

moving with Aloha graceful ease

This is their home.


I am only passing through

grateful to catch a glimpse of what lies beneath




About Be Strong. Be Courageous. Be You

Principal at the School at the north end of Los Angeles Harbor where AWESOME happens. Working to make the world a little more wonder-full.

    Is this Akumal or Tulum? Oh no.. there’s my clue Mahalo – Hawaii. Snorkeling is like entering another world and you described it so perfectly.
