Some innovative children made this beautiful sand turtle while waiting for Belle's release. Notice the detail. There were even tracks (but people kept walking on them) and some sand eggs! (Photo by Marge Bell)
Friend Margie from Cocoa Beach sent some remarkable photos of a daytime emergence (for the non-turtle folks, an emergence is turtles hatching and working their way out of the sand nest, an interesting process in itself). That will be the subject of a posting this weekend.
All in all, a good day for turtles in Brevard County.
