Turtle Babysitting - Night 6 (Wednesday)
Thursday, September 10, 2009
DH opted to stay home for the Yankees game, so I went to my 5:30 synagogue membership committee meeting, and then on to the beach - arrived about 6:45, to find crowds. Well, maybe 12 people - but 4 were at a folding table with dinner and wine and everything!!!!! I sat down and ate my PB on a multigrain bagel, and my apple. Others arrived, complete with dog wearing a flashing red light collar (?????) - they spent much of the evening in the water with the dog, throwing things for him to retrieve.
Warm night, nice stars, some mosquitoes, no turtles.
We chatted a bit, sat and vegged out a bit, called to the turtles a bit.
On the up side, the other nest at the next beach over hasn't hatched yet either, so maybe this year's batch of babies are just running late.
