TURTLE RELEASE

Yesterday we went to the beach to watch a turtle get released back into the wild.  A couple found this turtle back in January on the beach, it was ill and taken to the Virginia Aquarium for rehabilitation.  It was at the aquarium for 6 months and was released yesterday.  It was such a great experience to be apart of!

When we first got to the beach I thought that runway was for the turtle!  I quickly realized it was a wedding when I saw the guys in matching suits, I didn't think a turtle releasing could possibly be this fancy...LOL  When we were leaving we passed the bride and Tyler yelled out that he saw a princess.  He was so excited and talked about her all the way to the car.  He was so cute!

We're famous!  LOL  You can see Peyton and Tyler and part of me on the video

We have a sea turtle rehabilitation hospital about an hour north of here. We went and took a tour and saw some turtles, but I hope that while we are living here we actually get to see a sea turtle released! I think its so cool that you got to do this! :D
