Sunrise Morning

I’m kind of embarrassed it took me so long to do this, but I finally went out and watched the sunrise. We wake up really early for work and leave before sunrise so it took a lot of effort to get myself out of bed on a day where I did not have to.

I was glad I did though, because not only were the sights beautiful but I got to see a baby turtle!

We did not see him hatch, we just saw him crawling down. Andrew and I think we need to go out earlier to see a bunch hatch because it looked like we had just missed them from all the tracks in the sand.

It took him a lot of effort to get in the water and once he did the waves really pushed him around. He made it out there eventually though! It is such a crazy experience that the little baby turtles have to go through.We walked down the beach and saw another baby turtle doing the same thing as the first one. We are pretty lucky to live Β in a place where this is a common occurrence! Hundreds of turtles come to nest on our beach every year.

It was very humid and started drizzling a bit but it was brief and did not bother us. Eventually we went inside for coffee and breakfast, but we felt very fortunate to have this experience.
