Every time the gardener here at Tierra Mar cuts down a hand of bananas and hangs them from the deck roof, a large Olive Ridley sea turtle swims up for a handout. We know whenever this happens because the 5-dog alarm goes off and three of the dogs in particular get quite exercised at the sight of the turtle. Whoever happens to be nearby tosses a banana or two or three to the turtle, or enough to get a good photo.
