"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step..." - Confucius

This turtle had sat on the beach sunning himself nearly the entire day. Just as the sun began to set, he started a new journey crawling across the sand; back to the sea and into the unknown.

Even though it isn't particularly a rare event to see a turtle crawling to or from the water along the beach, it is quite rare for it to happen in such perfect timing with an extremely gorgeous sunset in the background.
