Hobcaw: Martha had an active morning with multiple crawls and trying to beat the approaching weather! She did a great job keeping good data and taking photos:)
Gimpy made a return with 2 more false crawls. One was a perfect breast cancer symbol with no digging. The other was more typical with multiple attempts. There was a long, crazy crawl north #15mm where the turtle climbed the scarp, crawled up to the dunes, bumped along and made a body pit on top of a dune. The turtle passed near HOB29 (7/4). On her return to the ocean she meandered again, finally making it back in! Martha located the egg chamber among the uprooted vegetation…way to go!
