Nest #18 and #19 today.
Nest #18 is west of the 400 walkway. She had a 36″ crawl.
Nest #19 is east of the golf course steps and had a 33″ crawl. Danny and
Joy were the lucky ones who got to see her nesting. With the full moon it
was easy to see her prepare the nest. She had barnacles on her and
floundered in the sand to get back out. She went down the beach a bit
instead of going straight back into the water.
Friday news first. One false crawl near 435 CBR with a 36” crawl.
Saturday news. We had 3 false crawl and 2 nests. False crawls were at the east end and west of the public parking area. Crawls were 30”, 34” and 37”.
Nest 16 was relocated from the east end to east of the Baptist walkover. We moved 124 eggs and mom had a 39” crawl.
Nest 17 was east of the Baptist walkover and had a 31” crawl.

We thought we had 1 false crawl and 1 nest this morning. Turns out we had 2 nests. Both had 34 inch crawls and both in front of the villas. Nest #8 and nest #9 are in the books!
They reported seeing a turtle crawling back into the water and I’m sharing the picture they sent me. You gotta love a sense of humor at 0600.
