We were thinking we might get lucky again this morning and find more turtle activity. What we did find, was a lot of no-see-um activity because there was hardly any breeze when we started.
You never know if you will see a turtle; sometimes we get lucky!
Footprints in a sea turtle nest! :(
Footprints on another nest. :(
Clouds got brighter and brighter pink as the sun came up.
Yes that's me, a mere shadow of myself. :)
We had no turtle activity, not even a false crawl.
