The best holiday ever
In February this year I had the best holiday I
have ever had in my life. I had one on one time with my Grand-daughter Alicia
who I only see once a year. It was turtle hatching season so it was wonderful
seeing these beautiful little turtles at the lecture by Dr Meech and then
letting them go into the ocean at night. After the lecture by Dr Meech he asked
were there any questions. Alicia had her hand up in the air quick as lightning.
She asked the question do the turtles get given names as they are tagged. No
came the reply because we didn't know what sex the turtles were yet. Quick as a
flash she said we could call this turtle 'Jo' as Jo was a girls name as well as
a boys name. As the turtle was placed into the ocean Dr Meech said that the
turtle just released would come back to Lady Elliot Island in 30 years time.
Quick as a flash Alicia said to me "Grandma I will get you out of the
Nursing home and we will come back to see 'Jo'. You'll be 96 years old by then
Grandma". We both had a wonderful time patting turtles in the water as
well as experiencing swimming with the beautiful Manta Rays. My one on one time
with my only Grand-daughter was priceless and I can say that it was the best
holiday I have ever had in my life.
