Is it a Nest?

Only time will tell...
 The activity was right at the base of the dune.  Mostly dry loose sand which made it hard to find the nest.  We probed and dug, but did not find the nest.

 On the turtles way back to the ocean she crawled right over the log.
 She wasn't going to waste any time getting back into the water.
 While checking nest #3, Barb found ants and two very small pcs. of shell.  She covered up the ant holes and continued to walk.  Upon returning, there were no ants, but lots of Ghost Crab tracks.  We will need to keep an eye on this nest.
