Myrtle the Turtle

I went to the New England Aquarium with a friend that was in town today, and we loved this lady, Myrtle the Turtle. Myrtle is 75 years old and weighs 500 pounds. She has been at the aquarium since it opened in 1969.

Aren't sea turtles just the coolest? When I lived in California, I loved going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and sitting in front of the turtle and tuna tank and watching the turtles. They have a very Zen-like/tai chai quality about them. Watching them can be quite relaxing.

Nice picture!
