New life and old plastic…

It’s a joy to revisit the coves and rocks, pools and dunes of Happy Beach after a long summer up north. In my absence the beach has been cared for by our kind housesitter, who discovered a struggling hatchling from one of the turtle nests. He cleaned her up, and helped her take her first little strokes in the welcoming sea.
