Loggerhead Hatchling Hope

This morning (August 1, 2020), as we checked the forecast for the umpteenth time to see what Tropical Storm Isiais has in store for us, our fourth nest, Hope, hatched. One energetic hatchling was still on the beach when we got there for sunrise. Seriously, this nest was named Hope on June 3. The determination of this tiny creature, following its own internal call to get to the sea, is amazing. And a good reminder to be good beach stewards: fill holes and knock down castles, gather trash, etc.
