We stumbled on the National Park Service turtle patrol this morning, digging the egg shells of the remaining successful turtle nest (317 of 325!) on the island, and here were the last three hatchlings of the season. Greyfield Inn guests do the honor of safely releasing these tiny youngsters to the sea.   Those that survive may reach 300 lbs, and return to this island to lay eggs.
The great journey begins...
Dunes held back the 'spring tides' on the south end Tree Swallows hangin' out on the beach
Surprisingly curious, the Pine Warbler Ever curious, the Carolina Wren
Some call them clichés, but we never seem to tire of sunrises.
