30(ish) Days of Fun::Caitlin's Arrival to the First Day of School
inspired by Mighty Girl
This was a morning of pure magic. Caitlin and I went on the 4am nesting tour at the Ras al-Jinz Nature Reserve to see the endangered green turtles lay their eggs. The experience was hushed, intimate, peaceful--pretty much amazing. My only wish (aside from getting to see some baby turtles hatch) would have been to make the sun stand still. Dawn came much too quickly and as the morning sky grew lighter, all of the turtles left the shore for the sea. Our turtle tour was possibly the highlight of my trip; it was certainly was a most wonderful way to start the day.
