Snuck out of the condo early enough to see the sun rise over a calm Atlantic Ocean here in Juno. It was a perfect morning to walk on the beach. The water was warm and the air temp was still under ninety. Connecting the sunrise and sea to land, I counted thirty-three sets of turtle tracks along the shoreline near the Seminole Golf Club, plus another thirteen sets marked by a volunteer turtle tracker on an ATV.
Two of the nests had been disturbed. Crows were feeding on exposed eggs. Thankfully, the majority were well buried. We might have to walk down to the beach after dark tonight and see what comes ashore.
Further down the beach, two guys were working in the water by a small limestone outcropping. When asked what they found, they said it was the intake check valve for a salt water pool at the golf club -- installed in 1927. Said they had been looking for it for the past two weeks. The inside brass parts were shiny and still working.
