Standing on the beach in front of Cape San Blas Lighthouse at the crack of dawn, I watched these Brown Pelicans coming and going.
Just behind me, a Sea Turtle nest. This is the height of Sea Turtle nesting. Good souls patrol at dawn and sometimes overnight to check for crawl marks and new nesting sites, then mark the sites like so to protect them from disturbance.
Read about Sea Turtle nesting (video clips, too).
Read about the Cape San Blas Lighthouse where you'll find a map that shows you where I stood to take these photos.
Like this stretch of beach, a large percentage of wild acreage on St. Joseph Bay is owned and protected by the Air Force. Just to the left of the viewfinder I saw my first boom.
