Gordon’s Surprise for Alabama Point
From Peggy Lively (Alabama Point Team Leader) – Aug 12th
Greetings from the Point!
A little before five this morning Lisa G. called. I-4 was hatching!!!!! I was already dressed (had Pre-Dawn check).
I rapidly went into over-drive, called Rosie to text team and ran to the Turtle Taxi. When I got to the nest three adorable ladies from Indiana were guarding the babies. They had spent the night! For 16 years Cheryl ( who was crying with joy) had waited to see a hatch. The “boil” was within minutes. Our special family from Kentucky ( The Sturgeons) arrived just in time. Karen, Richard, George and Herman came to help. Chuck tried to make it also. Thanks team! To the delight of all (especially Blake, Kaylie & Carter– Who helped with the count) 53 vibrant, strong hatchlings marched to the sea. We will carefully monitor the nest since we have more to come. We are so blessed to live in Paradise and are a part of God’s beautiful plan.
