Saw a turtle yesterday, swam with it for about 5 minutes before it decided that it casually needed some air. It glided up through the clear blue, and for some reason I was reminded of a scene from Star Wars... A big spaceship takes off and flies away from coruscant, and it looked like a turtle... Sort of.
