Manta Rays, Sea Turtles and Intestines

No, it isn't a mistake, Chris and I did find the insides of something on the beach. But, let's start off with a good note.  A few days ago Chris and I were body surfing at Temples beach and I asked him if he saw the shark too. He yelled at me to get out of the water and we both intently watched for this "shark".  The next thing we see is an eight foot manta ray flipping its wings up at us with a little baby right next to it. I ran to get my camera and found, I didn't bring it! But lesson learned.. bring my camera EVERYWHERE!
So sea turtles.. Chris took me to Lanikea (?)  where the sea turtles swim up and lay on the beach. We walked down and I saw a massive sea turtle just hanging out, getting a tan.

That's just Chris and I standing in front of it. So cool!!

So, about the intestines.. Chris and I were on our way to the beach again and walking along the shoreline, I saw something that didn't look right. I screamed just to freak him out and once we got closer, I really screamed! A HUGE pile of intestines! I told Chris to get it out of the ocean at least and then we'd figure out what to do next. While he was getting a stick to pick it up, he yelled at me to "Come look at this!". Great. There was a pair of lungs, another pile of intestines with a stomach attached. My first thought was "Wow, that's so disgustingly cool". So my brave hubby picked up all the pieces and put them together. I asked what to do and he said to just leave it. Are you kidding?!? So.. I called Kai. I asked him what to do and he said to call the police. Ha Good call Chris. :) So I called and no one answered. We took pictures and then a local came by and said it was probably a couple of big turtles attacked by a shark. He said he would come by and bury it later that night. Okay.. Anyway, that was our Great Find of Temples Beach.  Now the pictures..

Notice the huge white stomach? sick.
The two set
I think this was the lungs..

    So fun, you will never ever forget your first place. How fun to be so close to the temple and the beach! Gross to the intestines! lol

  2. More mantas less intestines! What a day on the beach!
