It’s been a while since I posted a travel theme! The week’s theme, “Tiny,” instantly reminded me of a weekend trip to Isla Mujeres, an island a ferry ride away from Cancun.
There was a place I visited called Tortugranja, where they protect turtle eggs and care for them through the various stages of growth, until the turtles are released. I had the fortune to hold a baby turtle in the palm of my hand. I’d never held such a small animal before! I would have been happy just seeing the babies, so being able to hold one was a wonderful surprise.
The experience was one of many enjoyable ones on the island. I would go back, and I’m surely going to see the turtles at Tortugranja again!
