The Turtle emerged from the sand hole, taking in a whiff of salty air. Its instincts directed him towards the ocean; it was almost as if he needed the water. Staring down at the waterline, the turtle felt an overwhelming journey ahead of him. One small turtle step at a time, he inched his way towards his destination. The world seemed to disappear around him, all that existed was it and the water. Making a couple of minutes seem like hours, the turtle finally reached his destination, his journey has just begun.
