Turtle Nest

A turtle came up and laid her eggs on our beach last night.  The nest was marked as the 12th one, but the first I have seen this year.  I guess I need to take longer beach walks.

I'm glad, that despite the oil spill, she made it.

That is awesome! Let's hope the baby's can survive when it's time to return to the sea!

The photo was taken from the high tide line, so you can see how much beach we have now. It is about half as much as we had as soon as they finished the re-nourishment.

Thanks Vince for the recent updates. How wide is the beach now in front of the triplexes? I remember a few years back being able to fish from the boardwalk when the waves were washing up to the bottom steps. It looks quite different now.
