06 May Turtles
Jeffrey Gaines acoustic guitar played over the boat speakers as he sang “In Your Eyes”. Lost in thought as the second verse started. I noticed a dark round object off the port side of the boat. I grabbed my camera in hopes that it might be a sea turtle. I took several pictures and ended up with one great shot. The water was a magnificent blue. May through October is turtle nesting season in Florida. Last year on Cayo Costa Island there were over 200 nests on the beautiful, curvy eight miles of sandy beach. Tomorrow I will be walking the south end of Cayo Costa looking for turtle tracks. This picture of turtle tracks was taken last year at the south end of Cayo Costa on a hot July day.
