Quick Vacation Review

Thanks everyone on the skirt comments! Funny thing is I never even got to wear it on my vacation! It had something to due with the airline losing our luggage. We didn't get our luggage until 6 days into our vacation. But that's an entirely different story. Add a canceled flight on the way to Panama, really stormy weather the entire trip and it was an adventurous trip to say the least. But we did have fun and that's what matters most!

I wanted to share a few photos of an uninhabited island where baby sea turtles are born. It was an amazing ( wet) trip by boat. The friends we visited in Bocos work with the Smithsonian doing research on the local wildlife. That's how we got the inside scoop on the baby turtles.

Just a simple dock and a thatched roof hut house a couple of researchers from May til Nov on this far off island. No foot prints but our own. Oh, lookie. Another storm rolling in!

This nest hatched a couple of days ago, so the researcher dug the hatched nest up to count the eggs.
Turtle eggs. They are about the size of golf balls.

Add we were lucky enough to see a baby hatchling! Still camouflaged by sand it was trying to make its way down to the waters edge. I have a cute little movie I made using my camera and once I figure out how to put it on here I will.
It made it's way to the water and the sand got washed off!

And if you ever wonder where all the worlds conch shells go, they come here. The beach was littered with tons of these gorgeous, large shells.
