We had one tough walk with soft sand and a very high tide but we still had an enjoyable trek to the inlet and back. Although we did not get the chance to witness a nesting turtle or emerging hatchlings, it was still fun. The following morning we found only 1 new nest, 1 false crawl and 1 nest that had emerged, so the odds of seeing turtle activity was not in our favor.
See below for pictures taken from the morning patrol. We are now up to 177 nests and 109 false crawls at Edisto Beach State Park. Thanks for your support for our turtle program!
