Ie Shima: The Giant Tortoises

by Pa Rock

Island Hopper

As we were taking one last drive around Ie Shima, Murphy suddenly yelled from the backseat:  "Go back, go back!  I just saw some kids taking pictures of giant tortoises!"  And after circling back, we discovered that he had been right.  The kids were standing outside of a walled-in enclosure that contained a couple of dozen giant tortoises.  It wasn't a zoo - just someone's private collection.  Those big fellas were quite a surprise!
