Our second night walk of the season was another rainy night but thankfully the lightning had passed and we were able to still walk. We walked all the way to the inlet before seeing a nesting turtle. This loggerhead sea turtle had just finished up laying and was covering her nest. We got to see her pack down the sand and then fling the sand to cover any evidence of the egg chamber. She was a fast nesting turtle so perhaps she has done this once or twice before.
The following morning we marked this nest as 108, finding 5 new nests in the morning bringing our total to 109. We are now tied with the nest total from last year and have two more months of nesting.

Part of the proceeds from a nest adoption go back to our turtle patrol at Edisto Beach State Park. Thanks for all of the support!
