Saturday Night:

It was dark and buggy last night for most teams sitting.  Nest #76 had one hatchling emerge at about 9:00 pm, giving Team 4 some hope for the rest of the nest!

Sunday Morning:

The Buggy (Turtlemobile) decided to give Joy and Kathleen problems this morning as they arrived near the Golf Course beach.  Tom Waite saved the day by coming and checking it out.  There was a loose connection to the battery.  Thanks, Tom!!

  • Nest #73 had one more hatchling emerge overnight.
  • Nest #78 had 2-3 more hatchlings emerge overnight.
