They're Getting Closer

14 nests so far in South Carolina...and every nest is getting closer and closer to the Grand Strand. Of course there is no real way of predicting when the turtles will start nesting on our beaches, they don't necessarily move further north with every nest. But I would LOVE to have a nest on North Myrtle Beach before the end of May. Last year's first nest was around this time, the timing was perfect!

Our water temperature just made it to the 70 degree mark and I think loggerheads need at least 68ยบ water. We need some nice warm sunny days to get the temps up just a little bit more I think.
