Baby turtle release: Lombok, Indonesia

We happened to pick a strong swimmer who made a beeline for the open sea, so we tried to keep Bella focused on him/her, rather than the other baby turtles who kept repeatedly getting washed back onto shore by the (not very strong) surf. Ultimately, not sure how romantic this Valentine's Day activity was, thought up by the otherwise very nice Oberoi Lombok. Reminded me of those butterfly releases that people sometimes do for weddings, which I always thought was more traumatic than romantic.
