Me too!! And I have never seen so many at once before...watching them all scramble for the best spot on the log was priceless. When a kayak would come by, most of them would plop in the water for a few minutes before climbing right back on. I think I've found my new favorite spot!!

Super cool thanks for sharing. Is this like actually the wild? Or is "Turtle Paradise" like some kind of sanctuary?
It's actually just called Juanita Bay Park - it just felt like a paradise to me! lots of people go for the birds...lots of herons and frequent eagle sightings. Plenty of other cool wildlife - saw a small beaver too!
