Loggerhead Turtle Sanctuary

This place is amazing, and we have been here several times, but Tuesday we took my cousin Dana, and her little 8yr girl Kylie who are visiting from LAX. We walked in at 11:55 and the lady at the desk asked us if we were here for the release!!! We couldn't believe our luck! We had stumbled upon the day that they were releasing a rehabilitated turtle into the sea and it was all taking place at 12 noon! We raced out to the tanks to see them loading the turtle onto a turtle stretcher and then we all went down to the beach and lined the staked out "runway." We watched them send the turtle home to the ocean and the crowd cheered! It was an awesome moment.
