To our utter amazement, we were fortunate enough to observe a mass of baby sea turtles emerging from the nest. Two other women arrived around this time, and they too were in awe at the scene unfolding before us. (Please excuse the quality of the photos...there was not a lot of moonlight and I've lightened and enhanced the photo as much as possible to try to show you what we saw)
Pam and Lisa stayed at the edge of the water watching the hatchlings work so hard to scramble over the many footprints and indentations in the sand to make it to the ocean. David stood by the nest trying to watch for any turtles that were attracted to the lights on shore and possibly guided in the wrong direction, just as we had been instructed at the LMC. The rest of us just stood on the side and stared in wonder at how quickly the scene was unfolding.
