Our Date with the Sea Turtles

John and I walked to the beach this evening with hopes of seeing some sea turtles, doubting that we actually would.  But boy, DID WE.  We saw four sea turtles, to be exact.  The third we only saw from afar as it went back into the ocean, but we sat on a blanket with the privilege of watching the fourth lay her eggs.  It was a beautiful, clear, starry night and it could not have been more perfect.

 It was a date, after all.

 The proud mama turtle, aka #4
 Mama turtle heading to the ocean.  We followed her all the way there...
 ...she was moving pretty swiftly...

 ...and then she was gone.

It was really dark so it's amazing we could see them at all (and truth be told, the first turtle scared the crap out of me) but I'm so glad we could!  It was one of the coolest things I have ever witnessed.  Seriously.  So basically, Juno Beach rocks.
