Wild Sea Turtle In The Bahamas

wild sea turtle in bahamas
Within minutes of anchoring our Fountain Pajot catamaran in the Sea of Abacos, Bahamas, this sea turtle pops up to entertain us. It was extremely healthy as seen by its colors and clarity of the eyes. To see a wild one within 3 feet of you is a definite highlight.

The scene unfolding in front of the Mona Lisa at The Louvre in Paris… complete mayhem with people attempting to take a selfie with the famous picture. This capture is more entertaining than a photo of ‘her’!  Couple other observations… the Mona Lisa is really small vs. what you would expect, and people would rather have a photo to say they were ‘there’ vs. actually taking in the art.
