121. Turtle Beach
SEPTEMBER 2007: Turtle Beach
Parque Pedra de Cebola, to be translated as the Onion Stone Park, is located near Camburi Beach, in the city of Vitória, capital of the state of Espírito Santo. The park is named after the onion-shaped giant stone, and attracts many visitors during the weekends and holidays. They not only visit the stone, but also will enjoy the bright colors of many plant and flower species, and the presence of a small number of animals. For sure, these turtles gain a lot of attention from many visitors. But they appear not to be much interested in the human species. They live their own, slow way of life: they sleep a lot, move around, eat their daily meals, swim around, and sunbathe groupwise. Because of the small size of their stone beach, they have to share the tine space with each other. For them it is no problem to lie down on each other.
