Inventory of Nest 4

Steve giving out instructions before we begin
The imprint of the cage

Linda, Flossie, and Sarah begin digging

 Trying to determine if they are following a ghost crab hole or the egg chamber.  We have been duped a few times with previous nests!
 Val making a determination about which way to dig next.
a live hatchling

 And we are off!  It was overcast this morning, so the babies took off to the water!
Second live hatchling.  This little one was disoriented for a time.  Kept walking up and down the beach parallel to water line before finally making his way to the surf.

First taste of the sea!

Barb returns turtle skull to beach.  We are not allowed to keep it.
Sarah takes pictures of skull to use for a science lesson later with her boys.
