Hope June has been treating you well so far. Feels like summer here. I think some of that Florida humidity might have followed me back LOL
While the FLAMINGO is iconic in Florida, so is the SEA TURTLE!
I've spent a lot of time at the beach during "turtle nesting season", but I had never seen a fresh nest until this trip!
So exciting. It gave me goose-bumps!
On our first early morning beach walk, Eleanor & I enountered a nest being marked by the Conservancy team. "She" had only recently moved on!

Here's something IMPORTANT that didn't really get my attention until about the 3rd notice.There has been a STEAMFAST IRON RECALL.
I love my little workhorse! But, turns out, it has to GO!
See that cute little Elephant Logo? And the short little grey bushing that covers the cord going into the iron? Those indicate that this may be one of the FAULTY, possibly short prone & shock-producing irons.
