Location: Airlie Beach, Australia

MapTuesday 24th March - A bit of leisurely exercise!

Today Re and I went sea kayaking. The prime objective of the trip was to spot sea turtles ... which we did!!!!

When we rested at a small patch of sand on the other side of Airlie beach we saw a couple of heads pop out of the surface of the water! I quickly jumped in to see whether I could get a good photo of them but I do believe now that they are the undisputed champions of hiding. Also they know you want to capture the best photo because after tredding water for about 15 minutes a turtle popped its head up no more than 2 metres away from me! but as soon as I lifted my camera it had gone!

Just seeing them at all was amazing though.
