An outlet for my peaceful ponderings with, perhaps, the occasional rant.

From turtle walks to fire works

On the night turtle walk

The night walk through a night vision scopeI spent a pleasant Fourth of July weekend with my family learning about sea turtles and relaxing. We saw two movies: "The Devil Wears Prada" and "The Lake House;" went on both an early morning (7 a.m.) turtle patrol (no new nests but 5 false crawls) and a late night turtle walk (10:30 p.m.); again no turtles but it was a wonderful beach walk even if we didn't get home until 12:30 a.m.!
our fireworks

On the 4th of July, we slept late and made our way to St. Marys. Once there, we relaxed and had a "traditional" 4th of July meal of hotdogs, roasted corn-on-the-cob, potato salad and watermelon. We also ignited some of the obligatory fireworks although my favorite will always remain the sparklers.

    Sounds like a great weekend. That last photo of Griff is a little frightening!

    Looks like so much fun! Watermelon: yum! We had one, too.
    I've escorted two different "litters"( there's probably a name for that)of turtle hatchlings to the ocean. In darkness, with some other campes. The rules from the rangers being no touching, but you CAN run ahead and smooth the sand.
