Nest # 23 Tuesday, July 19

Tuesday walkers discovered a crawl and body pit just below Marker 5.
 The wind had erased the track in the dry sand, but the body pit was clear
and well defined. The loggerhead brushed up against the wall of sand and
then laid her eggs and left a nice big mound for Steve H. to probe. Eggs
found!! The fourth straight Tuesday with a nest for this lucky group!!
