Turtle Excavation

video
Pam - Well, the second turtle nest hatched last week and the nest was excavated over Labor Day weekend.  What a cool experience!  I got to watch the ranger dig up the nest and he showed us the hatched shells, the eggs that never hatched AND one hatchling that what coming out of his shell.  The above video is the hatchling that was saved and he was later released into the ocean.
  We have one more nest to go here at North Beach Campground.....  Now I get to sit on the beach and watch the pro surfers go at it!  We are enjoying the efforts of Hurricane Leslie since she is creating huge waves that should last until next Tuesday.  There was a surf competion in Nags Head over Labor Day weekend and since Leslie was sending us waves, many surfers cancelled their flights home and decided to stay and play!  This retirement stuff is tiring!  I have so many things to see and do - how did I ever find time to work?????!!!!!
