OMG! What an exciting evening. Arrived at H-1 just before 7:00 to find Jerrie monitoring and hearing some activity. Still no depression. She listened until 7:15 hearing couple of good waterfalls. I decided to freshen the trench, Jerrie was educating. Cathy and Penny showed up and took over trench duty. Took a look at the nest and SURPRISE a huge depression with a head just under the sand – this was abt 7:40. Got the ONE CALL NOW made while feeling a little panicky with the crowds gathering and 3 volunteers. Recruited some visitors to trench the drive-thru and help at the water. At 8:15 H-1 boiled up 80 babies. Several volunteers made it , some to see last couple turtles in the water. The crowd of at least 200 was great!
Thanks so much to Jerrie, Cathy, Penny, Jane, Norm, Greg, Jennifer, Gayle, Tommie, Karen, Tina, Mark, and Jeanetta!
This was a special day!
