When I was pregnant with the boy I used to swim here daily. He loved it just as much in utero as he did today. •
We came at low tide, it was standable almost throughout, even for a shorty like me. At one point I stopped swimming and stood, wondering where I should go to see a honu 🐢. I put my face back in the water to swim again and I found myself face to face with an enormous turtle swimming straight toward me maybe two feet away. Surprised, I spluttered backward to avoid a collision. It veered to my right waaaay less perturbed than me. Magic.
