Turtle Walk #11

We headed out a little early again this morning.  We were anxious to see if there had been any turtle activity. 

As soon as we started, we saw a Missouri friend, who is staying at Ocean's Reach, coming out to see us.  That was a pleasant surprise, but we only had time for a quick hug and hello.  We had a couple of special nests to check on and also wanted to get our walk over before it got too hot out.  We planned to talk more with her on our way back.

 In front of Pointe Santo we found turtle tracks. But after looking them over, I think it was a false crawl.

The end of our zone and time to
turn around to go back.

When we got back to our starting spot at Gulfside City Park, the turtle walker from zone 5 was just getting back too.  She said their walk had been pretty entertaining because there was a group of manatees swimming around, just a little way from where we were.  But, we were too hot by that time and didn't go on to see them.  We also didn't see our friend, but after seeing a picture of the manatees on her Facebook wall, I know where she was. :)
