From my recent trip to the island of Hawaii.
These were taken at Punaluʻu Beach.

Cool shots! I have shot many turtles in the water but not seen them on the beach. Were they laying eggs or just chilling?

I grew up in Hilo and have never seen turtles out of the water. That was amazing. Thanks for sharing.
