Thanks!

Just warn him that there might be dew/rain on the benches.

Something like that...a pedal car maybe. At least I didn't have to think to hard as to whether my van with a cartop carrier on it would fit.

Oh yeah. Maybe I should've thought that through. Well, you're here to laugh with me, right???

Very true. Although on a cruise, you want to sleep in because you're still full from the midnight buffet the night before. Judy didn't prepare any such midnight buffet.

I don't remember the numbers, but I think they told us at the turtle presentations that they saw higher numbers of nestings the summer before, and we were on pace to pass that this summer. So yes, it seems to be very encouraging.

Good planning. As Seinfeld points out, Morning Guy always gets the shaft from Night Guy.

It really does! You wouldn't expect animal tracks to be so uniform.

Kind of like when the guy walks into the men's room and chooses the urinal right next to you.

Is this for Cynthia's benefit?

Another reason to get out there early, because I hadn't seen any earlier in the week. They get washed away or stepped on.

I thought I felt okay, but I guess I was still a little bit dazed because I did not notice the raindrops on that bench at all. They're pretty prominent in the picture though. Oh well.

Yes, it was amazing to just be able to wake up and look at the ocean from your balcony or walk out to it....it's right there!

I don't think I would've guessed it either if I hadn't been to the turtle presentatons earlier in the trip.

They probably did! I wonder if anyone came along and saw that dry spot on the bench and had a laugh.

Why yes, I will have some AKV pictures. How did you guess?

All those hatchlings will have a little play-date.

Right. Now Morning Guy has overslept so many times that Daytime Guy has lost his job and Night Guy has no money to go out anymore!

Glenn, beautiful sunrise pictures. I could sit by the water and watch the sunrise every day.

Too funny that so many turtles go to the same area.

My favorite picture of the group...






Seriously, I'm sure most of us have done that a time or two in our lives.

The wake up part would be difficult, but it looks like it was at least justified.

Yeah, looks really cool!

Now I'm sure you're going to come back here now that everyone has commented about it and tell us it looks like a machine made it, because that was a machine.

So apparently, sea turtles don't understand the concept of marking their territory.

Here's the question... When you felt the dampness did you just roll your eyes, shrug it off and make yourself comfortable, or did you shoot off the bench like it was electrified and look around to make sure nobody was around to see you?

The stars must have been aligned yesterday because I got a point! (Or I'm stuck at work and it's really boring because it's a holiday week and there's nobody here) Woo HOOO!

Of course we are ALL laughing with you, Glenn.

The last episode I caught was "The Lottery" (NoBetteMiddler) so it was nice to have several chapters to catch up on.

Enjoyed the Vero report GB! Looking forward to the WDW segment!

I am having some serious Deja Vu on yourr last morning. Wild.

The tracks fascinated me, they definitely look like a tire track of sorts.

Lovely morning pictures! I do like the email folio
