It’s Thursday, so it’s time to share Thursday Thirteen πŸ˜‰

Do you still remember about my mom’s trip to Lombok to hike Mount Rinjani? (you can see it> Here), she didn’t only hike to the mountain, she also visit the famous island Gili Trawangan. It’s famous amongst foreigner tourist. My Mom even said she felt like a minority there as there are more westerners than Indonesian….I can’t say much about that, to know more you have to read her blog >Here


The Crowded Gili Trawangan Island

She is not a beach person so she got easily bored there till she saw a sea turtle conservation. She immediately took pictures of those babies. Sea turtle is Indonesia language is Penyu and the baby is called Tukik.






There were little fishes on the corner. Those fishes were their food


Mommy thinks he is very handsome



A closer look of the handsome tukik



Mommy tries to edit the picture


He looked like a kite πŸ˜‰




These are much younger babies. They were only few weeks old when she took the picture



He was looking at his reflection



I think he thought Mommy’s finger is food πŸ˜‰



She made her own sea-turtle on the sand when she felt bored


Those are the 13 pictures of sea-turtles in Gili Trawangan Island πŸ™‚

Fortunately she didn’t bring one home because sea-turtle is not a pet, they are endangered species.

Here’s a short video of the swimming tukik
