"If you have to look along the shaft of an arrow from the wrong end, if a man has you entirely at his mercy, then hope like hell that man is an evil man." —Sherlock + "Men at Arms" by Terry Pratchett. (artist unknown)
Akumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico - In Akumal, or "Place of the turtles," green and loggerhead sea turtles make the calm Caribbean bay their home year-round. This year alone, more than 30,000 hatchlings have been released by volunteers and visitors of Akumal's ecological center. Snorkel out from the palm-lined white sandy beach to see the graceful swimmers—some as big as semitruck wheels—and hear them munch on sea grass.
