We came to recognize the same cast of characters and one turtle we call
Friendly has allowed for great close ups as well as posing with us. He even made
contact with Alice today. It is illegal for us to make contact with the turtles but
the turtles have no such law. :-)
Above, Friendly sits in his cave.
Above is a self portrait of myself with Friendly. I am holding my camera on the other side
of Friendly's head. This image illustrates just how wide the angle of the view port is. Below
is another self portrait with another turtle we came to call White Spot.
Below is a small turtle the locals have named "Cookie". She is tolerant but wary
of us humans.
Below, she is swimming below Alice and you can see how small she is. Her underside is
very white; unlike the yellow of the larger and adult sea turtles.
