Seems the sea turtles like to come onto a sandy beach right next to the road along the north shore of Oahu. Tourist books are calling it "Turtle Beach". And tourists are stopping there every day by the thousands.
Imagine a two lane highway with several hundred cars and tour busses stopped along a 200 yard stretch and everyone trying to cross the road.
Waiting 45 minutes in stop and go traffic to get past the beach is normal.
Double that on the weekends.
Yes, your lucky you don't have sea turtles on the downtown square.
