    I love sunrise at the beach!!! Your pictures are beautiful and really capture that peaceful, easy feeling...

    That is one of the reasons I prefer a vacation on a beach to a cruise. On a resort vacation, you can actually get out to the beach at the crack of dawn or late at night, and you don't have to rely on a tender to get you to and from where your room is.

    The turtle tracks are totally cool! It is really encouraging to see so many nests and to see them being protected.

    Nice pictures of the early morning. Great time for a walk on the beach!

    That is so cool, and yes, looks like the 4-wheeler made them......

    Sea turtle people - is that a new species? :rotfl:

    Those tracts that the turtles make are crazy. Wow - that's some hard work. And what a nest jam up.

    So how did you feel after your sunrise walk? Obviously you still needed a second cup of coffee to prevent you from sitting on a wet bench. :rotfl:

    Beautiful pictures :) looks like an amazing walk. I remember Florida at dawn, it has a very unique scent and feel to it. I imagine being near the ocean was somewhat different though!

    Ah, the wet bench... I've been there.

    That was very nice of you to get up early so we could have some sunrise pictures to look at. Thank you for sharing.

    I never would have guessed a turtle made those tracks.

    I am sure the next person who sat on the bench appreciated you drying it off for them.

    Looking forward to more. Have a great Thanksgiving!

    Wonderful sunrise pictures! And very nice of you to stick to your earlier promise! :thumbsup2

    Those turtle tracks are really strange. I would have sworn that this must have been some kind of tractor that caused them!

    I really liked your Vero report - but I must say that I am very excited that the WDW part is about to start now! :cool1: Especially because I am expecting a few AKV pictures and I am going to stay there in the spring!!

    Those turtle tracks are really big!! Funny that that one turtle chose to have a neighbor for her nest!

    I love watching the sunrise over the ocean! Judy had a great idea!

    First with the Judy-count, and first to comment....you're on a roll.

    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???

    Now that I've done it, I can check it off the list. :laughing: ;)

    I recommend getting agreement ahead of time!

    Thank you!

    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. :confused3 :rotfl2:

    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. :goodvibes

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

    Looks nice! Too bad it was so cloudy.

    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. :rotfl::rotfl2:

    Maybe the Vero Beach Resort boiler room is under there?:confused3

    :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    Is this for Cynthia's benefit? :rotfl:

    I guess we were still a few minutes late for the rope-drop show. :rolleyes2

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

    You always like a laugh at my expense. Glad I could provide one.

    :rotfl2: I thought the same thing when I wrote it! But I couldn't think of anything else to call them, so went with it.

    :crowded: !!!

    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.

    Let me guess, your room was near a dumpster wasn't it. :laughing:

    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!

    [​IMG]

    I was glad I did, and I probably wouldn't have done it on my own.

    I hope you do too!

    I don't remember if it was her idea or mine, but we had to document it! :)

    popcorn::

    The things I do for my readers! :goodvibes

    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.

    Aw thanks! You too! [​IMG]

    Thanks Magdalene. I'm glad you enjoyed them.

    I know. They look very "mechanical".

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

    All those hatchlings will have a little play-date.

    She did. I'm glad I went!

    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!

    I think we should've stayed a few more weeks until I got the perfect picture. ;)

    Nature's Sherman tank.

    :scared: You're not "that guy" are you?

    Maybe. It'd make a nice little incubator.

    Laugh it up fuzzball. :laughing:

    Yes. She forgot to take a picture, so I got it from every angle! :rotfl2:

    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...

    :lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao:

    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.:rolleyes1

    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? :confused3 :rotfl2::rotfl::lmao:

    It's green. :confused3

    Uh oh. I hope you explained ME well enough. :rolleyes1

    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.
