we were fortunate enough to see these amazing Hawaiian green sea turtles ("honu") coming in for their nap in the sun on Lanikea Beach on Oahu's North Shore. they are considered a threatened species so their protection and preservation is an ongoing effort in Hawaii. the first time i saw one up close was on our second trip during a surf lesson. i was just hanging on to my board and drifting when a honu popped his head up a couple of feet away and looked at me. i was stunned. absolutely fell in love with them. currently have three honu tattoos on my leg, along with much artwork and jewelry. so getting these photos at "Turtle Beach" was a huge thrill.
