It's unusual for a sea turtle to nest in the daylight, and even more rare to have a photographer on site to capture the moment!
On July 23rd, at about 9:30 in the morning, a lone sea turtle crawled out of the surf to lay her nest on Don Pedro Island north of the Colony Don Pedro. Onlookers said that the loggerhead brushed past a beach chair that was propping up a kayak, knocking the kayak off of it's perch. The turtle then crawled up the beach, stopping to carve out a nest and lay her eggs.
