The turtles evaded us yet again as we returned from the inlet without a sighting. We still had a fun night walk! We got startled by scurrying ghost crabs, discussed horseshoe crabs, checked out constellations and looked for bioluminescence before a wave soaked all of us!
The following morning they found two new nests and one nest that had emerged! We are now up to 174 nests on the state park beach. See below for pictures taken during the dawn patrol.
