Time for Turtle Tracks!

A new group of tiny loggerheads crawled down Opal Beach yesterday.

The nest had been threatened by TS Fay, but did well, so we were happy to see the little guys healthy and ready to go...

They almost crawled out of their temporary tranport on their own! Click on the image to see the cutest turtle ever; you can almost hear the turtle crying "let me out!!!"

Nicole had a chance to help out with her first hatch this season, though she has already found us several nests this year.

One of hers is due to hatch on Fort Pickens this weekend... Can't wait to see them swim away!
