Sea Turtle

Hey Little Dude!

Finding Nemo, 2003. One of the best animated films of all time. I loved watching the movie with my youngest daughter and we loved the turtles.

Painting a sea turtle reminded me of watching this movie with her. It took me back to the memory of her little baby giggles during the scenes with the surfer dude turtle.
