Gordon’s Surprise for Alabama Point
June 23: From Peggy Lively (AP Team Lead)
Happy, happy, day!
What a night! Mike called a little after eleven p.m.. Tourist called in turtle on beach at Phoenix X! I called Rosie to alert team that wanted to be called, jumped in my jeep and headed to the beach. I walked all over and saw no crowd, no turtle, all quiet. I called Mike and he contacted spotter who sent me farther down the beach. I saw what looked like a sand sculpture—-but it moved!!!!!! Mama was laying! She was just nine feet from the water. After finishing her process she headed to the water. I checked for a tag and she had none. I suspect this is the Mama that gave us two false crawls two weeks ago and laid in Fl. Thanks to all who came and helped move the nest to safety—especially our two junior members, Emma & Noah. We finished with big smiles on our faces and happy hearts.
Enjoy our Paradise and keep the turtle dance alive!
