Sea Turtles and Mad Hitmen

Share Button

We recently moved next to the water, which has been truly glorious. But tonight I discovered one of my new duties now that we live on the water: I am expected to dispose of the dead sea turtles that wash up on our beach so that their bodies won’t make us sad. I also discovered that dead sea turtles float and the tide just brings them back to us.

So there I am – in my work clothes and overcoat digging a hole in the cold, frozen rocks of our beach in the pitch black to bury a turtle – and I couldn’t help but think, “I’m like some mad hitman who has hit rock bottom.”
