I am so happy I got to go to Florida this summer. If there is one thing I can say is that the Beaches of South Walton are absolutely amazing. One of the first things I noticed is how clean it is! So many people clean up after themselves. It makes me so happy. I swear, I must have been a mermaid in my former life. I feel so at home near the ocean.
I am an official SCUBA DIVER!!! I am so happy in the water. I was hoping I would get to see a sea turtle when I was on my first dive at the Destin Jetty but I didn't What I DID get to do was actually pick up some trash from the bottom of the sea, It made me happy to do it but sad because it was there. I talked to a dive master who is on the Turtle Watch in Destin and he told me that the number of nests were down this year. I asked him what caused this and he said that last year they had over 100 nests and so it would be 2-3 years before those turtles come back.
I don't know when I'm going to get to go back to the beach. My Aunt Phi is going in September and my parents are going in October. I will be in school and so I am not invited. :-(
So since I can't really participate in Camille's Cause for a while, please remember to help me out when you go. Just email me your pics of you picking up the trash and tell me where you are. I can't wait to show the world what we are all doing!
I love turtles! See you soon!
