Gordon’s Surprise for Alabama Point
I hurried to the beach for patrol very early (8/5) due to the bad weather coming ( I was walking for Gale). Just a little after six I spotted a crawl! I saw two areas of thrown sand and looked West to see dark awesome storm clouds approaching. I called Herman to bring supplies and Gale texted the team. I ran to the Flora-Bama and finished patrol. Ellen & Beverly finished the West end and came to help. We quickly searched for eggs while waiting for supplies. Rick, Herman and Gale were coming. Ellen found the eggs right where a huge “ghost crab” had dug. It started to rain and rumbles were heard. The crew arrived and we safely finished relocating the 78 eggs just ahead of the heavy lightening. We were soaked but happy!
We have had a very exciting week in Turtleland! I wonder what tomorrow holds?
Happy Turtle Mom
