Turtle Babysitting - Night 5 (Tuesday)
Wednesday, September 09, 2009
DH didn't want to go, so I made supper at home and then went to the beach by myself. There were the usuals - our Coral World staff, an older woman who has been there almost every night, and then new people, a couple with their dog (they didn't say a word to the rest of us all evening). Another nice evening of stars, nice chatting with the people for a bit - then we sat and sat and sat. One of the staffers showed us iPhone photos of the hawksbill turtles who hatched last month on the north side of the island - so cute, little tiny guys skittering down the beach and then gliding off in the water. Made me even more excited about what we're doing!
So - tonight looks rainy, I'll pack an umbrella in addition to the rain jacket. Tonight is night 59 since the eggs were laid, and the average incubation period is 60 nights - so let's home this is the night!
