A Different Kind of Treasure Excerpt:

It was a clear and still night out on the ocean. The moon’s silvery glow reflected on the water’s surface, swaying back and forth, back and forth. Tanya the Sea Turtle glided through the waves with grace and purpose. She loved exploring, and she often ventured beyond Ahway Island’s colorful reef and seaweed forests. Nighttime was her favorite time to explore the ocean’s secrets.

Tonight was a perfect night for adventure. The ocean was alive with beauty. As Tanya swam away from her comfy turtle nest, she watched the coral cast dancing shadows on the seabed and tiny fish dart in and out of the seaweed. Further and further she swam. The moonlight from above shined through the waves, making everything look magical.
