|Off to the Big Bad Ocean they go!
I did quite a bit of mingling with the turtles yesterday — part of the reason I’ve been missing from my blog.
I’m in Mirissa, Sri Lanka, and among other things, I got to help some tiny turtles get a head start on life.
So you’ll forgive me if I disappear for a while — I’ve been on a jungle safari today, and watched a couple of ornery, heavy-breathing cobras this evening from less than five feet away.
If I get lucky, I might get to see a blue whale tomorrow.
If that sounds whacked out to you, that’s because it is. I never expected this out of my trip to Sri Lanka, either. Now, I got to go get my beauty sleep for my first ever trip to the Indian Ocean. See you all later this week!
