Loggerhead Turtles in Sao Vicente, Cape Verde, Africa
We spent about five weeks in Sao Vicente, Cape Verde before we set sail across the Atlantic to Brazil. During this time local fishermen showed us a beach where we could actually swim with sea turtles. When the weather was good, we went there, brought our snorkeling equipment and there they were - those giant and peaceful creatures, flying gracefully through the water: Loggerhead turtles are the world's second largest sea turtles and national animal of Cape Verde.
