Just had a walk from Port Elizabeth to Oldhegg Turtle Sanctuary. The lucky turtles (the healthy ones) get to be released at age 5 into the sea. The hope is that by increasing the number of older turtles in the sea the sanctuary will assist the attempts to save the Hawksbill and Green turtles from extinction.

A very windy bay to stop in and noisy by day as 300 terns use the boat next to us as their daytime resting spot (they seem to rest for most of the day)
