Visitors and Turtle Walk Thursday

The three teenage visitors came for two weeks and .....

We had tons of fun with them....
Then they were gone. :(
It's amazing how fast time flies when you are having fun.

The next group of visitors came a day later.... :)

But before they arrived, we did our usual Thursday Turtle Walk.

You never know if you will see a turtle; sometimes we get lucky!

Footprints in a sea turtle nest! :(

Footprints on another nest. :(

Clouds got brighter and brighter pink as the sun came up.

Yes that's me, a mere shadow of myself. :)

We had no turtle activity, not even a false crawl.

Later in the afternoon it was time to make another airport run.  The clouds looked beautiful as we drove over the Sanibel Causeway.

Clouds were hanging around the airport too.

Their plane arrived on time.  Yay!

A daughter, two grand daughters and great grandson will be staying for almost two weeks. :)

Clouds were still hanging over the island when we returned.  Less than two hours later, we had a nice rain.

You got some beautiful sunrise pictures, but I was saddened to read about the footprints on the turtle nests. I hope you enjoy your new group of visitors as much as you enjoyed the last group.

Absolutely stunning photos! Beautiful!

Have a wonderful time with your new set of company! Oh my gosh, what a little sweet potato he is!

I was wondering how you all were doing with all this heat? Looks like you're having a great summer with company.
