Raven hair, ruby lips
sparks fly from her fingertips

...uh, never mind. that was last night.

This morning: Scudding gray clouds, misty foggy air, and, in the timeless words of Mr. Spicoli, tasty waves. Unfortunately, the humidity was higher than the temperature so it was not "brisk" We had Reynaud the fox at nests 58 and 64. one egg lost in the first and 2 in the second. It appeared the eggs were not far enough along. In both cases, the nests were screened and the stakes were pulled in closer to the clutch making it easier on those who have to inventory them. We also had a new nest (October again before we are through). It was a green turtle at 835 Ponte Vedra Boulevard and green tape was used to stake it out (cause that's all we have left). Moreover, we had a false crawl at the Sawgrass club and pavilion. It was the same green turtle who nested later at 835 PVB as mentioned earlier. Due to my uncanny deductive talents, I was able to discern this by the crawl tracks. Left flipper was distinctive.

Regarding the false crawl, the lady crawled upon the beach and literally ran into the wooden rental kiosk. So in addition to the distinctive left flipper track, we seem to have a lady turtle who needs ophthalmic attention and possibly a visit to an ENT to take a look at her proboscis.
