We just barely made it out alive from the shark attack, but since then, each day we’ve had an incident, or so to speak…After diving in Scottburgh, we went to St. Lucia Estuary for turtle viewing. Between November and February each year, the loggerhead and leatherback turtles come to the shores of St. Lucia to lay their eggs. We eagerly signed up for a tour, but did not see any turtles. Instead, we had a white rhino, take notice of us, and charge us. I guess we were infringing on his space, and he wanted us to know who is boss. These beasts mean business when they charge. First off they weigh up to 5000lbs., and they can get up to 25 miles an hour. Lucky for us, our tour guide backed us out of the situation, and the white rhino had it’s territory, thus its honor restored.
