I had morning patrol with our new interpretive ranger, Laura. She is more of a night owl but she woke up early with excitement of turtle nests. We had two nests and one false crawl in the morning and Laura even found the eggs to the second nest!
After morning patrol I had some much needed coffee and breakfast and then I went for my 4 mile run to support the Loggerhead Marine Life Center in Florida. I was a virtual runner for the Run 4 the Sea race that was happening in Juno Beach, Florida. I was happy to be able to donate and get active for something I am so passionate about. The picture below is of my post-run excitement!
