My friend Susie who owns MacIntosh Books saw baby SEA TURTLES hatching! She got to share the experience with her best friend Gail who was visiting from Maryland. Lucky girls! You can see that little guy sliding on his back trying to get his balance- awwww, so cute! Thanks for sharing this Sooz!
She sent me a note with the pictures…
“The absolutely coolest thing ever happened on the beach. Gail and I were taking a walk near access # 7 on Wednesday about 6 p.m. (on her last night here) and we came upon a loggerhead nest in the midst of hatching! We saw five little turtles break out of their shells and run to the water–and off they went. I hope you can see from the pictures what’s happening. It was awesome.”
Oh what a wonderful thing to watch. How lucky they were to be at the right place at the right time. Aren’t they so cute!
How amazing! We live in a coastal Fl town and that is something I have always longed to expierence! What a lucky lady!
And I thought the purple scallop was beautiful – each post tops the last! Thank you for sharing with this inland city dweller.
AWESOME! Thanks for sharing!!!
I got to watch a leatherback nesting a few years ago and that was awesome but to see hatchlings emerge would be fantastic…..maybe someday. Thanks for sharing.
This is my dream….. I want so bad to see this someday. I LOVE SEA TURTLES!!!!! You are soooooooooo lucky…..
Turtles are my favorite sea animals. To be scuba diving and see these stately creatures swimming along underwater is a privilege. Just wish I had been with my wife when she saw them hatch.
It is one of my dreams to see the sea turtles hatching! Thanks for posting the pictures.
Your friend Susie was in the right place at the right time to experience such a wonder.
I hear you’re going night shelling with us in November and I’m even more excited! We’re going to have SO much fun.
Beautiful! Thank you for Sharing! That’s GREAT.
