We headed out to Jupiter Beach last weekend for a late-night turtle walk. And to my surprise, SUCCESS! There were several nests already marked, and we watched as one turtle made its way up the beach. I guess it didn’t like the sand, though, because it waddled back to the ocean pretty quickly — quick, for a turtle.

I thought that was pretty cool just to catch a glimpse of a turtle, but then, TURTLE SCORE! As we were walking along the beach, heading back to our car, we witnessed a turtle laying eggs! It was awesome!! We were on the beach for an hour or so, just watching the turtle mom carve out the perfect egg nest with her back fins. Then, egg-laying extravaganza!!

What a way to kick off the Fourth of July!!
