An Interesting Thursday

In zone 4 a turtle went up an access path over the dunes at south beach. Her body pit was in the middle of the path. After three people probed the nest ~ including the master ~ Buddy~ it was declared a false crawl. Zone 3 had nests #65 and #67. Zone 2 had nest #66. The wind was so strong you could barely see the tracks above the high tide level, and in zone 2 the tracks completely disappeared coming and going! It was pure intuition and a hint of a ridge that led to the discovery of the nest!
