Tula's Day in the Bay!

Friday, March 09, 2012

Tula had been curled up in her shell for a big sleep. She was woken by the soft sound washing up on the beach mixed with the pitter patter of soft rain. Tula opened her eyes and decided that it really wasn’t a great day to stay o the beach. She stretched her head out from her shell and then her legs and had a big stretch. She rolled her neck this way and that and sighed.

Everything was wet, except the sand where she had made a little nest for the night. Tula sighed once more as she made her way to the water’s edge, it was cool and fresh and the water felt good to Tula so she swam out into the deeper water and splashed around.

Tula saw lots of little fish as a school swam past and some of them came up to her and tickled against her skin, she saw snails on the sandy bottom of the bay and she even saw some jelly fish as they progressed along the shore.

There were seagulls in the sky and a pelican with his big beak was swimming along the shore waiting for the fishing boats to come in.

Everything felt just right, this was how Tula expected her home to be. Nice and clean and healthy.

The fishing boats started to come in and there were more seagulls following the boat, they looked like they were hovering in the sky effortlessly. Tula liked to watch the gulls and imagine that she could fly.

The boats tied up on the wharf and the men unloaded the fish, some they threw back into the water and the gulls dove for them looking for a free feed.  Some they threw further out to Tula who caught one and ate it for breakfast. Some they kept to feed the people.

Tula tired of watching and went for a big swim she needed the exercise to stretch out the kinks from her long sleep.

Tula know that she needs to be active and there are lots of ways to get her exercise, sometimes she does her yoga, sometimes she swims, sometimes she plays chasings with her friends.  Tomorrow Tula is meeting her friend Mali and they are doing yoga together so today Tula is swimming to stay fit and healthy.

Tula swam past a plastic bag floating in the water, she was scared by it at first because she had thought it was a jelly fish and might have eaten it. Turtles love jelly fish for a quick healthy snack. Tula pulled the nasty plastic bag out of the water and when she got back to shore she put it in the bin. Plastic bags and balloons had hurt Tula’s turtle friends in the past and she doesn’t like to see them floating in the water where the turtles all like to play.

A little girl watched as Tula put the plastic bag in the bin “why are you doing that?” she asked.

“Plastic bags and balloons and other rubbish in the water kill turtles, and other sea creatures. It is everyone’s responsibility to keep our water clean and our wildlife safe” she replied.

The little girl saw some more rubbish and picked it up and put it in the bin while she said “I hope that helps keep the animals all safe”.

Tula thanked her and went back into the water safe to swim another day.

Tula and the Turtles

Friday, January 06, 2012

The Turtles all swam into Tula's bay to rest. There were 12 Turtles in all at Tula's Bay.

They had been out in the Ocean and needed a rest and were looking forward to seeing their friend Tula.

Tula helped them get comfortable on the sand. They had swum a very long way to visit Tula and were happy to see her looking so happy and well.

The Turtles knew that Tula has lots of friends in her bay and were happy for her, but they really liked to swim in the currents and travel the coast while Tula preferred to stay in her safe bay.

Tula introduced the turtles to her friend Sun and they talked and played together. The turtles joined Tula as she finished the day with her Yoga. Sun thought it looked wonderful to see so many Turtles together doing the same yoga poses together.

You can do the poses with your friends and Tula using the Epona Yoga DVD
