Remember that when you leave this Earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given, a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. -St. Francis of Assisi

Sea Turtle Hatchlings

Friday, August 16

Set the alarm for 5:30am to check for this announcement
Good Morning. It's Friday 8/16. Yes a public release this morning at 7am. Releases are located at Cameron County Access 3 just 1/4 mile north of Sea Turtle Inc. on the beach. This is 1/2 of a loggerhead nest. The other nests hatched through the night and have been released.
 We'll see you there!!!!!

I was surprised at how many people showed up,
this picture is 1/4 of the crowd.

I decided to stand in the water so that I could get some pictures.
The tide was coming in, so I got soaked with each wave.

Going home...


  1. Oh my gosh, this is just too wonderful for words ... what a happy way to start the day. Love your last caption...

  2. Oh Terri I think I may winter there just to be able to see this sight it brings tears to my eyes. They have such a hard road and many don't even get started. This is wonderful. Thank you SO much for sharing it. I also love your header quote and 1000% agree. Have you read her books?

  3. Now that would be worth getting up for.

  4. I remember the night I was on turtle watch in NC, and a nest 'boiled' up with life. Thanks for reminding me of that awesome experience.

  5. This is an awesome experience.

  6. Oh how wonderful to be there and witness this. Their so tiny.
