Today. I came home from my walk with wet, sandy shoes and both hope and worry in my heart. I saw THREE sea turtle nests on the beach. What excitement! To think that in about 4 short weeks, hundreds of tiny sea turtles will hatch from these eggs and make their way to the water’s edge. A small distance to us – but how far it must be when you’re only 3 inches long! Who knows what dangers lurk from egg shell to wave…Will they make it? The hope is that they will! The worry is that we humans will mess with those nests, despite the fact that they are roped off and identified! A couple of years ago, I saw just one nest. Today, I saw three. Fingers crossed!
