The water here in the Dry Tortugas is amazing. The deep water is a deep but bright blue, turning to turquoise as it gets shallower. You don’t even see water this blue in swimming pools. The hubby keeps saying that our time here falls into the category of “doesn’t suck”. The pictures I’m posting below have not been retouched at all. It’s official. I want to live here forever.
Today we went over to Loggerhead Key with a couple we met last night. They’re also from Texas. How cool is that? It seems that everywhere we go, we meet people from Texas. And I’m OK with that. There is also a couple we met yesterday, that are volunteers over at Loggerhead and spend 3 months at a time living on the island and keeping up the maintenance. We want to know how they got that gig!
We walked the beach and got to see several Loggerhead Turtle tracks that lead to what look to have been nests. I’m guessing they were nests because then we would see tiny little turtle tracks heading back down to the water. It fell in to the pretty neat category.
On a side note I'm going to be starting one of Bob Bitchin's books this evening.
