Tahiti Express Returns

My buddy, the Hawksbill Turtle, is back in its usual feeding grounds. I haven't seen it for a couple of months and have been concerned because it is a Critically Endangered species. It was happily munching away on algae and sea sponges, and didn't even look up to say "Hello" to me.

The current called the Tahiti Express was ripping at nearly full-speed this morning. I swam in one direction for 50 minutes with the return taking only 10 minutes. I almost gave up early on, but was inspired by how easy this Spotted Eagle Ray made swimming up-current look. Poor critter seems to have lost its tail (I'll have to look for it the next time out).
