Yesterday I stopped at the beach for a half mile swim, after I got done it slowly dawned on my dim little mind that the beach was more crowed than normal. So I wandered around, eventually asking someone what was going on. There was a Turtle Release! Several times a year, the Turtle Farm here releases turtles into the wild.
Of course, it was so crowded I didn’t actually see anyone actually put any turtles in the water, but I did see several turtles with trustworthy turtle-release agents.
