Fun, Fun Fun!!

Fun, Fun Fun!!

Sunday, June 7 – Wild Exodus

 

We started the day as usually with Jesse walking the boys, while I made coffee, the bed and breakfast for the boys.

While walking the boys he saw this snapping turtle laying eggs at the edge of one the the camp sites near us. He went back with the camera to get these shots.

We had 310 check-outs today. Needless to say we were very busy at reservations and Jesse was busy with site clean-up.

Most of the people were gone by the check-out time of 11:00am, then things got much slower.

When we went home for lunch we saw that the eggs were all covered over by dirt. Jesse did some research and learned that the eggs hatch within 9-18 weeks, and they are on their own. The Mommy doesn’t return to the nest. It made me sad to hear this.

We are both home now. I made taco salad for dinner and we will just relax for the evening.

Hugs to all.
