We go to do the most unbelievably fun thing yesterday.

We released baby sea turtles!
We just happened to be in the right place, at the right time, and stumbled upon a group of people doing a "release the turtles" thing. Apparently they gathered eggs that they had found nearby, incubated them, and brought them out for release. They hoped that by doing this the turtles would have more hope for survival.
I'm no expert, and some may disagree with releasing turtles, but I was NOT going to complain about getting to help.
Wow. Those little turtles were something else.
On the count of 3, we all let them down onto the sand, and away they went.
We named ours Timatao and Julia. Vaya con Dios turtuguitas!!

Later, we came back and all sat on Mom and Dad's bed to watch a movie (since there is only one couch in the living area). We watched the Count of Monte Cristo. It was a good day!
