My day cut short for a good cause!! Includes turtles!!!

After hitting the road again following my shirt mechanical stop I managed to cover about 20km when I came across a sign that said there was a turtle refuge. I had run passed one of these a few days earlier and regretted not stopping. I was not going to let this opportunity pass. I pushed my stroller through the sand to find out more. It turns out that for 50pesos I can stay the night and for a further 35pesos I can actually help release baby turtles into the ocean. Took me about a second to decide.

To add to this great opportunity it seems that all the work is done at night because 1) the baby turtles are asleep during the day and 2) its too hot for them during the day. That means that I am now relaxing in a hammock until I can get to work later. (Hence the new blogs all arriving at once!!)

A full update will follow after tonight but in the meantime look at these little cuties!!! Excited is an understatement!!
