Picture 210 of 365
A Picture from the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.
Located on Jekyll Island, We went late one night (8:30) and saw a great presentation about Sea Turtles then headed to the beach to release two babies into the sea. The beach was really dark, but with a night-vision scope, we could see the little things struggle 10 feet or so to make it to the surf (important for bonding, I understand). Later, the LH and the kids saw a nest hatch and were able to see the last 10 or so little turtles make it. I had wandered off to another area -- it's hard to find people on the beach when it's pitch black, even with cell phones.
