Lady Musgrave - Turtle season returns early...

Wow turtle season has sure started early out here - well at least they seem to be everywhere at the moment.

We have been surrounded by the most amazing turtles almost every time we have been snorkelling. Big old Loggerhead turtles that gently glide through the water and little Green trutles that zip around in the clear blue lagoon.

There are some special spots on the reef where the turtles seem to gather in larger numbers. We really liked the turtle cleaning station in the shallow water on the south side of the island and the pool (or as Ryan has described it the 'mini mystery lagoon that has everything!') in the north wall of the outer barrier reef that only comes out at extreme low tide. Both are special places where the kids have spent hours swimming totally entralled by the spectacle around them.

Paradise? Well close enough for us at the moment...
