Earl, our dive guide

Today Lenny went scuba diving with his favorite dive operation. Here's Earl, the dive guide, with an octopus. While the divers were down, I snorkeled on the surface. I was all alone in the middle of the water when I thought another diver was coming up next to me. It wasn't a diver: it was a turtle, who seemed to want to check me out. He swam past my shoulder and then circled me at about arms length (that's my arm's length). His shiny brown eye on the near side of his head seemed to focus right on my face. He swam away, but came back later -- it was the first time I have seen a turtle heading straight at me, rather than swimming away. I guess he went back to his turtle home and told them about the interesting human he saw.
