The moon has been full and it is always magical when that takes place. I especially enjoy this when I'm
heading to the beach to do the turtle patrol. The moon is like a beacon that provides a bright light - which shows me the way. Don't get me wrong, the turtles do not necessarily nest during the full moon - however it
does affect the tides and it makes for a pleasant beach walking morning. This time of the year - we still have turtles nesting on our beaches AND we are on the look out for possible hatches. This morning, I specifically
looked for the tell tale of little flippers heading to sea.....not yet.....I guess they are not quite ready.
