The Sea Turtles - SOLD
To the Hawaiian people, sea turtles or “Honu,” are sacred creatures. They embody good luck, protection, endurance and long life. It is estimated that only 1 in 1,000 sea turtle hatchlings will survive to adulthood. Adult sea turtles beat the odds, so they make a wonderful symbol for luck.
The largest sea turtles in the world recorded was a 10 ft long leatherback weighing in at over 2000lbs. Sea turtles can live 80-150 years and some have estimated that they large ones could live to almost 500 years!
My personal obsession began once I started living in the Caribbean and found where my favorite turtles like to hang out. I would try to start my mornings with a turtle swim before a busy day cooking in the galley. When a turtle looks you in the eye, get ready for some soul searching.
