I was too excited to sleep. My family and I were going turtle watching.
We went late in the night when it was very dark. We walked along the beach checking to see if any turtles had come ashore. We were lucky! We found one. This one was a Hawksbill turtle.
It was so exciting to see when the turtle began digging a hole to lay its eggs. I had to be very quiet and sit very still.
Check out the turtle action in the video below. She is scooping up the sand one flipper at a time to create a hole. Really cool.
Unfortunately, the turtle went back to the sea without laying its eggs.
One day soon, I will see a turtle lay its eggs.
