Sea Turtle


There is a handsome sea turtle mural on Punta Gorda's main street.  Beside the mural is a poignant plaque.  A young mother who loved sea turtles was diagnosed with breast cancer.  
She passed away a year later, but her spirit moved the community.


Visit Monday Mural to see more murals.

What a touching plaque. She sounds like someone everyone loved knowing. That turtle would go well with the whales I have posted today.

'When the sea gets rough we should always be there for one another.' So true.
