Sea Turtle catching rays at Kawailoa Beach on Oahu's North Shore

My family pulled over to the side of the main highway of the North Shore in Oahu. A large crowd of people were surrounding a small area on the beach. We had heard of the turtle sightings here at this beach and figured it could only be the turtles that people are looking at. Sure enough, the beautiful creatures were sunbathing in peace while onlookers stared in awe and respect.
