Midnight in Melbourne

Melbourne Florida, that is.

The iPhone holds for 3 seconds to catch a wave

Do not disturb. Sea Turtle at work. Laying eggs.

Thank goodness for a zoom and a shutter that stays open a bit to capture the scene click here for some tips to follow during Sea Turtle Nesting Season

We hurried back to the motel so she could have some privacy. I can’t believe we actually saw her.

Hold still! the iPhone says. Shutter open for 3 seconds. It’s hard to hold it still. Wishing I’d brought a mini tripod to hold the phone steady.

How many eggs do sea turtles lay? The number of eggs in a nest, called a clutch, varies by species. In addition, sea turtles may lay more than one clutch during a nesting season. On average, sea turtles lay 110 eggs in a nest, and average between 2 to 8 nests a season.”

Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular Guest Blog

Guest blogger Eileen from Massachusetts went with her family to

Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at

Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island. They do this every year for the month of October. It’s a walk through the woods surrounded by Jack o’ Lanterns. This year’s theme was television through the decades. Started with 1950’s. Ended with 2010’s. From Sgt Bilko to Game of Thrones. In between were some familiar ones to me; Addams Family, I Love Lucy, MASH, etc. Lizzie and Kevin needed us to identify them. 😀”

Great job capturing the thousands of Jack-O-Lanterns. Thanks Eileen. Looks like a wonderful evening and happy we could join you virtually.
