turtle nesting season

We are in the midst of turtle nesting season (March 31- October 31). I have yet to sight some actual turtles coming from the sea to lay eggs, but the evidence that they have been busy is all over the beach. The nests are dated and labeled, so that beach-goers will not trample or disturb the turtles-to-be.


I've tried to get to the beach early enough to spy a turtle, but so far no luck. I did get to see an early morning surfboard paddler.


There is also some lovely beach flora blooming near the turtle nests.


We are going to hopefully visit the nearby Loggerhead Marinelife Center and see some turtes close-up. In the meantime, there's always the turtle cam!
