Thursday, July 26 was turtle walk 13. It seems the nesting season may be slowing down now, but there have been a few false crawls and there are still nests to hatch.
There is a leash and a lady was being led by this dog.
Lots of trash on the beach in front of CasaYbel.
I think some little girl will be unhappy
if she doesn't find her fishing pole. :(
I wonder if the same little girl abandoned Barbie...
Our assistant turtle walker is still with us!
The end of a pleasant, but uneventful walk.
