My last visit to Amelia Island was a much-needed break from the chaos of my corporate and urban life in Atlanta. I love a chance to enjoy nature and it’s even better when there’s water involved.
On my way to nearby historic American Beach, I was shocked to come across this creature in front of a house near the beach entrance. Now, I’ve seen my share of turtles from visits to lakes and nature walks by brooks and streams – they are usually so small and cute.
However, this turtle was BIG. I let him mosey on, of course – we both had a beautiful day at the beach to go and enjoy.
