Critter events...
It is currently the season for swimming with the whale sharks, and turtles are nesting on the eastern beaches in the wee hours. There are Tortugranja personnelmonitoring the beaches to prevent people from disrupting them, and to gather and transport the eggs for incubation.
       By far, most of the turtles nesting in Isla Mujeres are Green turtles (called Blancas in Spanish), and the second most common are the huge Loggerheads, and there are some Hawksbills.  The Green turtles take ~60 days to hatch and are held in the water tanks at the Tortugranja until the hatchlings are released by the public at events at dusk on Media Luna or Guadalupana. These events will occur periodically until early October and are usually announced a day or two in advance. They are rescheduled if the sea is rough.
    Lately there have been many rays, in addition to many whale sharks. From MVC, we have been seeing dolphins from the balcony,  and some large fish while snorkeling offshore. Lotsa mama turtles visiting our beach lately! 

 There are blue and red crabs migrate to & from the sea during the full moons, watch out for them at night on the coastal road at the southeastern part of the isle & in Sac Bajo 
  Lobster season began July 1 and continues until the end of February.

Fun times in the "hood" @ 12:34 a.m. in front of the neighbors house, MaraVilla Caribe This worker from the turtle farm is scooping out the rocks under the mama turtle trying to help her find a good spot to lay her eggs. I had insomnia so went out to investigate. Then I woke Lawrie and two friends, Andy and Yumiko, who are staying at R and Bruce's casa. Too funny that we were standing around on the beach in the middle of the night watching a turtle dig a hole. Love this place!
