While on the beach Monday we found this sad sight. A poor young sea turtle that had washed up on shore. The ranger had told us about him while we were walking and to make sure nobody was messing with him that he had a team on the way to pick the turtle up.
These 2 from the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Team showed up and were taking notes then loaded the turtle into the wagon to take back to the lab and study. They told us they thought the turtle was young by looking at his size. Maybe 5 - 10 years old.

P.S. The beach house I posted yesterday is not our beach house! It's just one of my favorites along the beach. Sad to see it all boarded up!
