We are freshly returned from our holiday, first in Houston to see friends and then in Puerto Escondido and Oaxaca, Mexico. In Puerto Escondido, we met this little guy and about four dozen of his brothers and sisters when we visited a conservation group on the beach. These baby green sea turtles had just hatched that morning and the group waited until sundown for their release to help protect them from bird predators. It was just about the cutest thing ever...until you noticed the massive, crushing surf pounding the shore. These guys don't have it easy, even when they have help.
The trip was fantastic. Playing at the beach was great fun and such as welcome change from Pittsburgh's endless winter, and the handicrafts and vibrant colours of Oaxaca were good for my artist's soul. I am working to get my head around being back in the cold and getting back to routine at home, but for now, I'm still revelling in the days of sun and warm weather we enjoyed.
Happy Easter to you and yours!
