We had a beautiful walk to the inlet and back but we had yet to see a turtle. Right in front of the white office building, where we started the walk, was a turtle egg chambering. We waited until she was laying her eggs and then got a closer look. We got to see her lay her eggs, cover and then return to the ocean.
The next morning our patrol marked this nest as 249 on the state park beach. See the pictures below of the body pit, egg sample and marked nest.
