      Florida Sea Turtles - AMAZING

      Mary and I lived on the beach for over 20 years in St Johns County, North Florida. Every year, the HUGE sea turtles would lay their eggs directly in front of our home. The area would immediately be roped off. We would get notices, and even warnings, to not turn our ocean side lights on. Although we occasionally would witness a dead GIGANTIC turtle on the beach, we never saw the babies hatch and scurry into the ocean.

      Today, some of our best friends, and employees, Ozzie and Paula took a phone video of about 80 babies scurrying into the ocean from their nest in St Augustine. They were at the right place at the right time! Everyone formed a line to keep the birds from getting them until the made it!

      That video is amazing. Watching the turtle head to the ocean is so exciting! So nice of the people to see that they made it to the water.

      Also, thanks for the info on turtles.

      As a teenager I was with a youth group on Dania beach in south Florida where we had a bonfire. While there, we witnessed this wonderful event of the turtle eggs hatching and made their way to the ocean. We did not have cell phones then, and no cameras with us, so we have only memories but it was something that you never forget. An awesome event to witness. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks for sharing that video. I never get tired of watching baby sea turtles make it back to the water.
