Sea Turtles and Mermaids!
What a great Saturday morning! Mary Lou, Judy, Patrice, Caroline, Matt and even Carson joined me for the 5K walk/ run on the beach for the Tybee Turtle Trot. Then we all watched 4 rehabbed turtles be returned to the ocean. 2 Loggerheads and 2 green turtles swam out to the ocean after their stint at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center . The first loggerhead needed some help, he wasn’t so sure he wanted to leave the care of his wonderful humans, but with some encouragement, he did swim off. Our own Tina Gann who owns Caretta Cottage ( latin for sea turtle) was one of the people who carried the first turtle to the edge of the ocean. Tina had a pretty darn great day on Saturday! We think Carson was the littlest runner in the race, even if mom pushed him in the stroller! We hope to have a much larger group of Mermaids running/ walking next year so start training now to join us!
