    Day 6

    After the experience last night we have the opportunity today to adopt for a year one of the thousands of Green Turtles that they are tracking. We named him Elijah in honor of our grandson and have a certificate and paperwork to prove. Elijah will have a great "show and tell" moment when he enters 5th grade this year.
