“Wednesday Wee Ones” and Turtles!

We had so much fun spending the morning at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island.

We were busily looking through the museum part of the building

when a lady came to tell us they would be working with a large sea turtle to teach him how to dive for food. (Gift shop photo...not me shopping in this one! lol!)

When they are injured or sick, sometimes they lose their food gathering skills.

Being in the rehabilitation area was the highlight of the day!

There were about 20 turtles in the center and a sweet lady telling us about each one! Thanks Jess!

We are tracking Talbot now and this is interesting, too. Click HERE to follow him in the ocean near Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Enjoy your day! Have some FUN along the way! turtle

Max looks very happy with his new turtle. Love his glasses.

Isn't it fun to learn something so completely new?!

Turtles are so interesting. How neat you can track Talbot. I hope Max realizes how lucky he is to score a gift shop treat--I usually say no to my kids!

I keep wishing turtles would come visit my little pond and decide to live here. That is, if the dogs would leave them alone!
