we went to the turtle watch last night,and talked ,almost a full moon
we were ready to leave at 12, and packing up, at 12.05 there she came
maybe 200 yards from where we were sitting
she came straight up than south 30 ft and to the water 10 ft to her spot
she dug for a half hour before we could get close
she had a narrow hole kind of round maybe 12 in dia at the bottom,maybe 2 ft deep
than she dropped her eggs,we were maybe 4 ft away, the ranger had a red light to see
we each had chance to touch her near her head
the ranger measured her location,and her 135cm x 65 cm approm 700 lb a med size
she covered the eggs,throw sand around and at 2 am went in the water
it was worth the wait
