Gordon’s Surprise for Alabama Point
A little after ten last night Mike called me from Orlando. A visitor had watched a turtle laying on our beach. I hurried out and found the crawl and nest area. No one was around. I called Gale and she alerted the team. Thanks to Gale, George, Mitch & Rosie for coming out to assist. Rosie found the eggs. The nest was very close to the wrack line in a low area. We moved the 112 eggs due North to safer ground. The crawl was 36″ . It was after one am as we were leaving the beach and approached by a tourist. We educated the lady as to what we had been doing. We were tired but elated. We had experienced another Adventure in Turtleland!
Happy Turtle Mom
