Turtle Rescue 911

We spent the weekend getting the beach at the lake ready, and before the tractor could get out there with the huge rakes on the end to clean it of all the winter debris, the kids ran out to do a baby turtle rescue first.

So with plastic yard rakes they went along the waters edge along the tree line and found about 7 babies that needed to be relocated before they were crushed beneath the tractors weight. My son brought along my camera and he was able to capture the rescue up close and personal.......think he's got his Mommsa's eye! lol
