Part N - More nesting Turtles

Back to the 2010 Spring Travel Directory

Laura showed up 4 days after Sue and Hannah. So we went out again nest hunting.

While I was doing my daily walk on the beach
I came across this sign on the deck of one of oceanfront homes.

This was the first one we found nesting. We had to wait until she started to lay eggs before we took pictures. Hannah really enjoys watching them.

Sue is using my red flashlight to look at the eggs dropping into the nest.

I lucked out and got an egg faling into the egg chamber in the nest.
Sue is holding the red flash light on the egg chanber.

The eggs are starting to fill the chamber.

The eggs are laid, the nest is hidden, and she is heading for the ocean.
