Myrtle the Sea Turtle

The Sea Turtle is one of Hannah’s favorite creatures, so I designed this critter for her. Paul dubbed her “Myrtle the Turtle”. I took Myrtle to the beach today for a photo shoot; the lure of the ocean is strong. See that wave rolling up the beach? Yup, that wave rolled right up to her and swept her into the surf. Twice, I waded out to snatch her up. She’s since been rinsed and is drying on the window sill. Hope you enjoy Myrtle the Turtle!
