    I love turtles!

    I have always wanted to see baby turtles working their way up from their nest below. Today was the day! We watched a batch of 40 turtles arise, make their way down the beach, and finally enter the ocean. This nest was located on Eagle Beach across from Oceania. It took about five hours, but after 10 years of waiting it was wonderful!

    What a great catch! Just a lot of magic in all that new life racing toward the ocean! We caught a hatching 3 years ago at Manchebo and it was wonderful. That video is on Manchebo's Facebook page.
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    I’ll ask the kids if I can share what they sent to me. Currently we have no internet and we are waiting on a tech so it may be awhile before I can upload them if they say it’s ok.

    I have a long video of one of the turtles going from nest to ocean that's too big to post. Here's one picture:
