Week Fifty Two: USA 🇺🇸
✘ Question of the day 💭 Are you more of an optimist or a pessimist? 📈📉 Some people I meet literally tell me they have good days EVERYDAY. 🤗 I mean EVERYDAY? They see everyone as a friend which in my books can be a little naive. But hey 🤷🏻♀️ what do I know maybe that’s just where I come from. 😂 Maybe I should read the book 📖 ‘The Secret’ and my life might change overnight ✨👀 I don’t know but I’m definitely a pessimist or a realist as I would like to describe myself 😂 I’m always moaning and being dramatic it’s just the way I am. I expect a lot from people and a lot from myself. I always expect the worst so when it’s great IT’S EVEN BETTER 😬 The pressure is REAL.
✘ In other news just outside our apartment in Kauai there were about 20 beautiful sea turtles 🐢 bobbing up and down on the shore everyday 🌊 We watched them FOREVER. Dreams much? ☁️ #Kauai#Hawaii#piesliesandthighs 🥧

I will never forget that amazing experience of releasing newly hatched sea turtles into the ocean☺️
This was at a sea turtle rescue and rehabilitation center in Mazatlán, Mexico (one of the shore excursion options listed for a Mexico cruise itinerary).
When you travel by cruise and you look through the many options of shore excursions, I encourage you to pick ones that visit animal sanctuaries, rescue/release centers, or nature.
Let’s support animal kindness and welfare organizations! It will be an experience you will not regret or forget ☺️

#Repost Thank you @the_wild_walker for the share, we really appreciate it 🙏😊 And yes, we do our best to take care of them before to release them on the ocean 🐢🐢🐢 #SaveTheTurtles#SeaTurtles#ProtectTheOcean • • • • •
What we love about this resort is their turtle care center where we can see cute baby turtles 🐢😍. It is managed by the @temanaotemoana association, they do their best to rehabilitate sea turtles who were found sick or injured and promote environmental awareness for the public. Don’t hesitate to give them a little help by visiting their website (link in bio) 💚
5 curiosities of the #Seaturtles 🐢
1- Stay up to 8 hours if they are sleeping or standing under water, without breathing 😲
2- Mothers nest and never take care of or feed their young again 😭
3- Can swim for hours and hours without getting tired🏊♂
4- They cry, but it's not out of sadness. Sea turtles shed large tears and in this way expel through the eyes the excess salt caused by the ingestion of sea water. 😮
5- The shell of a sea turtle is bony and consists of approximately 50 bones. 🐢
What do you think of this Hawksbill Turtle?
Hawksbills are found mainly throughout the world's tropical oceans, predominantly in coral reefs. They feed mainly on sponges by using their narrow pointed beaks to extract them from crevices on the reef, but also eat sea anemones and jellyfish.
Hawksbill Turtles are critically endangered due to the illegal wildlife trade as there is a huge demand for their shell.
