My Sunday photo

plymouth marine aquarium, turtle, sealife, blogger, parent blogger

This weeks sunday photo was taken at the national marine aquarium in Plymouth. It was fairly dark in there so apologies for the grainy photo but this is Snorkel the loggerhead turtle, a favourite amongst everyone who visits the aquarium. She was rescued 25 years ago after being washed up on the beaches of Cornwall but was too ill to be released back into the wild. She is blind in one eye and has a deformed shell so she cannot swim very well but she is definitely a beauty. 

Linking up to my sunday photo.

  13. Brilliant photo, aquariums are really difficult to get decent photos in! The aquarium in Boston has a long time turtle resident, Myrtle :)
