On a lighter note, Seth was showing us how to put a blue crab to sleep - just by rubbing it's belly. And it worked too!

|Love those red "fingernails"|
|She was on the beach for a pretty long time|
|Deep grooves on the right flipper and flatter on the left|
|Exact same spot as FC #4 near the jetty|
For the record, this makes 14 crawls for this turtle, although 5 of the 14 were short crawls way below the high tide line. Three years ago when this turtle attempted to nest on Waties, we had a record number of false crawls - 22 for the season, most of which could be attributed to this turtle. Looks like we may break that record this season. But that year, she actually did lay a nest - right near Hog Inlet - the nest never did emerge, but when we did the inventory, it was huge - 179 eggs!
We'll see what tomorrow brings...
