We saw 3 turtles in the water while we were at Papa’iloa Beach yesterday. They never came up on the shore and I was only able to get a couple of shots of one of the turtles out in the water. It was fun watching them frolicking in the waves as they enjoyed their day!
I also enjoyed watching this interesting bird hanging out on the rocks by the edge of the shore. Each time the waves would break, the bird would run towards the sand. I think it was some sort of sandpiper bird but I am really not sure. I have seen this bird before at other beaches on Oahu. Anyone able to identify it?

It is amazing how close to shore those turtles were.Those are incredible shots.
Thanks, Jerry! I have often been there when the turtles have come much closer or even up on the sand! The waves were pretty rough that day, so I think that may have been the reason they did not come up on the beach. I used my “spy lens” to snap those photos :)
Wonderful, I don’t often see photos of turtles paddling around in the sea!
They are tough to spot in the ocean but many of them come up on shore or wade near the shore at a couple of beaches I go to up on the North Shore.
