Once in a Blue Moon!!!

Hi!  Last Friday night  there was a beautiful Blue Moon over Lago Mar.  This only occurs every 2 to 3 years.  It was spectacular!!  Some of our guests were actually sitting down of the beach enjoying the moon when there was news that one on the turtle nests a short distance to the north of us was hatching.  They ran down the beach and were in awe , as they watched 50 baby turtles make their way down to the ocean.  Most of the little turtles made it on their own without any help from humans.  This is partially  due to most of us on the beach really trying to be extra vigilant when it comes to having either no lights or the approved amber lighting during “turtle season”.  There is also a group on men and women that put their heart and soul into staying out on the beach night after night in order to facilitate the turtles safe passage to the ocean.  The dedication of this group is amazing.  I was lucky enough to witness a nest hatching last summer, and it was one of the high lights of my life.  I believe we still have several nests on our beach, so it is going to be an exciting next month or two!!!  Deb
