WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: AWAKENING

What in your life is calling you,

when all the noise is silenced,

the meetings adjourned,

the lists laid aside,

and the wild iris blooms by itself

in the dark forest,

what still pulls on your soul?

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: MY FAVORITE PLACE

Paradise isn’t a place.

It’s a feeling.

IN A BARRIER ISLAND STATE OF MIND

The leatherbacks are here!

The first leatherback nests of the 2018 season ~ two ~ were deposited on Hutchinson Island.

 

Florida Wildlife says they’re the first nests laid in Florida this year.

All sea turtle species are doing pretty well, says Grace Dotson, a senior scientist at Ecological Associates. She monitors nests on sections of shoreline throughout the Treasure Coast.

“The loggerheads are holding their own and green sea turtles are definitely on the uptick,” Dotson said. “Only the leatherbacks, on our beaches anyway, had kind of an off year.”

Sea turtles have evolved over the years to deal with hurricanes, bona fide comeback kids.

Take that, Irma.



Take a walk with a turtle. And behold the world in pause. It’s out of this world.
