I think only about 10 baby tortugas were released, so it wasn't as dramatic of a release as last week, but beautiful, nonetheless. Although fewer turtles, this release was so great because the sun was just going down. Not only could we see the turtles without the red lights, but we also were able to enjoy the release with the added bonus of the sunset.
How amazing is it that now, on two separate occasions, I have seen baby turtles go out to sea!

And then, since my fifth graders and I have been studying one of my favorite topics, weather, and also learning a bit about clouds, I enjoyed the variety of clouds I saw. My students are currently keeping a cloud observation log, so I only thought it was fair that I join in as well:
|cumulus above (altocumulus) and stratus below|
|cumulonimbus, with a few stratus clouds in front|
