A trip to the Turtle Museum for Rich

When I was a kid visiting my grandparents in Juno Beach, we’d often go over to Loggerhead Park, the “Turtle Museum” across the street from my grandparents’ condo. So when I married a turtle freak, I told him all about the museum. We finally got to visit and Rich had a great time looking at all the turtles. A whole place dedicated to his favorite animal!

This is Jonah. He is a loggerhead turtle rescued by Loggerhead Park. He is being rehabilitated and then will be released back into the wild.

There was a tank of baby turtles, which had just hatched this morning. They were so cute! Some were already covered in algae.
