Probably had enough of al-Zarqawi by now, right? Yeah, me too

So here’s a little something different. I’m going on an adventure tonight.

First, Mr. Pop is taking me to dinner at one of my favorite waterside restaurants. Then, here’s the good part, we’re going on a turtle walk. We’re going to the beach after dark sets in and we will quietly, with lights off, walk the beach and see if we can spot a female sea turtle coming up on the beach to dig a nest in the sand and lay her eggs. Once she gets to the egg laying process we may approach her and watch. Until that time comes we shall keep our distance and remain very quiet and still.

I have seen this event many times but it’s been a while and I want to experience it again. Hopefully I’ll have a story and some pictures to share with you tomorrow.

Sounds like fun! I keep meaning to catch a grunion egg-laying event on one of the beaches here (San Diego). I love the beach at night (when it's not full of drunk 20-year-olds, that is).

Be careful out there. And be sure MR. PoP doesn't get any ideas! You know, like the whole laying egg thing and all that. It might get pretty romantic and all.

OOOPs, nevermind, you already went to the beach. You posted this yesterday. Sorry :)
