Costa Rica Day 16 Recollection
Today was a crazy day, we first were told that we would not be going on our shift from 1-4 am which was good so we slept in, ate breakfast then went down to the beach and jumped in the water. We were wondering after a while why our skin was itchy and it turns out that Costa Rica has microscopic jellyfish and that's why we had sting marks on our legs. We then had lunch and hung around until three where we played games to help us build turtle nests which was so fun! We then had supper and then at about 9:30 we were told we were going on patrol at 10 so at 10 we went and then we split into 2 groups. I was the first group so the second group left 15 minutes after us and about 1 hour in we found turtle tracks and our guide poked around to find the nest but we didn't find it until Luis our guide poked around and found the nest and found 104 eggs in the nest! Best part was we got to hold the eggs going back to the hatchery which was fun, and also I got video of her digging the hole and putting the eggs in the hole. We then went to bed.
