DAY 4 (knot)
Some of the word prompts, don't automatically translate into my chosen subject. Day four was one of those days. What could be associated to a turtle, that didn't speak of capturing them - or being hurt by boats or nets, that utilise knots?
This is when an online, word thesaurus comes in handy. It offers different word associations, to different meanings. In this case - a knot is a nautical reference for measuring speed. Sailors would use a rope with knots tied in it, to measure how fast they were travelling by sea.
I don't know how many knots per hour, a turtle travels, but I'm sure it doesn't care.
