Turtle hatchling time.
The eggs sit beneath the sand. They start breaking up. Tiny turtles struggle out of their shells and upwards to the air. The ocean their goal. The moon their guiding light. Instinct and the moon light their way to the ocean and new home.
Salute’s sits on Higgs Beach. Sunday night the restaurant was full. All of a sudden someone ran in and shouted the turtles are hatching. Every one left their tables and ran out to watch. One hundred five baby turtles came up out of the sand.
A fine article re the occasion in this morning’s Key West Citizen.
An interesting observation in the Citizen. The female hatchlings will return in 25 years to dig their own holes with their back flippers to bury their eggs.
Nature is wonderful! Wish hurricanes were as predictable.
My yesterday began with a brief walk in the new neighborhood. Walked before the sun was up. The humidity a killer even though dark. Worse when the heat of the sun joins it.
My manicure/pedicure appointment at 1.
Tammy still in Vietnam. With the two children. Visiting the family. Ricky left home to watch the business.
Nina has been doing my nails in Tammy’s absence. A lovely person.
Nina a stunning woman. Beautiful. A slim body. The face of an angel.
Twenty three. Arrived in Key West from Moldova only 9 months ago. Did not speak English. I thought her fluent. She thinks not. Modest.
Moldova is a small East European country. Part of the old Soviet Union. Population 3.5 million. A poor country.
Nina studied journalism for three years in college in Moldova. Did not finish. Took no English courses. She learned how to do nails in Moldova.
Loves the United States! Her new home. Has no desire to return to Moldova, except to visit family. Her sister is marrying next year and she plans to return for the event.
As to my nails, she does an excellent job! Has my wants down to a science. Short, round and buffed. She has strong hands. Resulting in great hand and foot massages.
Welcome to America, Nina! May your every dream be fulfilled.
Mel Fisher Days begin today. Run through saturday.
Today’s featured event a day time laboratory tour. The Private Conservation Laboratory. Special. The lab is generally off limits.
Hurry and make an appointment. The tours are limited to 8 persons and last 45 minutes. Each tour was sold out last year.
William Hackley mentions today the death of two persons. Died on separate days. Each buried around 5-6 on the day of death.
Why buried same day? I assume because of the heat. If another reason, let me know.
Remember government of the people, by the people, for the people? It is slipping away. Becoming more and more government of the rich and influential.
A perfect example is what has been reported in the media this morning. Involves Attorney General Jeff Sessions. A Southerner. A bigot and racist from a 100 years ago. A person who believes he and his ilk can do what they want when they want.
Sessions has had a memory problem re his visits with Russians. In order to qualify for the Attorney General position, Sessions had to file a form listing his Russian meetings.
Some believe he was less than truthful in his responses recently before a Congressional Committee. A Federal Court order was obtained requiring the Justice Department to release within 30 days the form listing Sessions’ contacts with the Russian government.
The 30 days ended yesterday. The Justice Department failed to turn over the required document.
Note Sessions as Attorney General is the head of the Justice Department.
Guaranteed Sessions is going to get his ass reamed before this matter is over. You don’t screw with a Federal Judge.
Enjoy your day!
