Life-saving at Kiteboard beach

The winds have been great for kiteboarding and we took our friends Bev and Jeremy down to kiteboard beach for a swim and to watch the guys in action.
While we were there a guy approach Jeremy with a turtle. Not understanding the language Jeremy understood that the intent was for this guy to eat the turtle so he got all distraught and decided to buy the turtle off him and release it back into the ocean.

 Fact is that if they can get hold of a turtle down here on the island they will eat them. It is supposed to be a delicacy. 
 Lucky for this little fellow though he got to live another day.
John released him softly into the water and we watched him swim away,
far away from turtle eating humans and hopefully he will never return to this beach again, or he'll end up in someone's belly....

    These pictures are amazing! It looks like paradise there!! Poor little turtles, I'm glad you saved one :) how amazing it must have been to watch him swimming away. What beautiful sea! I'd like to teleport myself to that beach right now!
