My alarm went off at . . .OMG 5:30 in the morning.
At 5:40, I got a text from Roland telling me to get up. Then from Patricia telling me she & Ian were almost ready to go.
I roused the kids, brushed my teeth and tried in vain to get Greg out of bed.
He missed it.
A quick stop at Starbucks for coffee & banana bread (shaddap).
Then we headed to the ocean.
There were probably 300 people there. Watching the turtles was awesome. Seeing my friends was awesomer. I saw my friend Amanda and her husband Josh. Saw Melissa & Ralph. I saw Tony. Remember Tony? I saw Nelda and Christie and Roland. Roland brought Minnie and Melissa. Saw Susan. Saw Patricia and her precious Ian (who also happens to be Paulie's bff!).
I didn't see Dee, or Sandra, or Jessica, but I know they were there.
12 turtle babies were released.
Apparently there are usually 75-100 hatchlings at a release, but apparently turtles, like Greg, prefer to sleep in on the 4th of July.
I haven't downloaded my photos yet, but my friend Josh did.
So I stole 'em!
