The Turtles are Here!!!
Pam - Ah, the stress of retirement! We have 3 turtle nests on the beach, with two of them hatching. For the last week, I have been checking the first nest that is due - well as best as I can since the NPS has roped off the site. Finally, nest #1 hatched last night. The park ranger informed me that the roped off area will remain until Sunday morning when they excavate the site for any remaining turtles that are stuck! I am allowed to watch them excavate and I may take pictures - such excitement in my retired life! Just think, I would have missed this all if I were still teaching! AND I have 2 more nests to go! Hopefully I will have pictures to post after Sunday (I've gotta keep up with Mike and his pictures!)
