Slowly but surely, I am trying to get the blog back to the present. On October 5, I went out to the turtle nursery around sunset to see if there would be a hatchling release. It all depends on whether any babies hatched and are ready for release. This day they were. Here’s some photos…
Counting the eggs to know how many hatched – it’s easier than counting the turtles who are constantly moving around.
They are not very large, with bodies maybe 4-5 inches long.
To give you an idea of scale, the hand belongs to my 12 year old daughter.
The crowd, anxiously waiting for release time.
Sadly, it won’t be like this forever. All that empty space.
