Staying Unsettled

Mornin'!  It's 62° in WW.  Happy Hump Day!  Happy "World Turtle Day"  It's going to start out with morning patchy fog and begin to clear as the day progresses.  Breaks of clouds will provide some peeks of sunshine.  It'll be more dry than wet however, there's a 30% chance of rain showers or afternoon/evening thunderstorms. Temps will tap the 70° mark.  Winds will be out of the S-SE at 10-15mph.  Weekend's beginning to look a bit unsettled as well.  Saturday's looking like the most pleastant of the Holiday weekend.  I'm still on it.
High Tide:10:00a.m.
Low Tide:3:30p.m.
Ocean Temp:61°
Sunset:8:14p.m.
Get your turtle costumes or jewelry out today to support the tortoises of the world! "World Turtle" day was created as an annual observance to help people celebrate and protect turtles and tortoises and their disappearing habitats around the world. World Turtle Day was started to increase respect and knowledge for the world’s oldest creatures.  (I just found out that a Turtle I know savors "red leaf" lettuce.) These gentle animals have been around for about 200 million years, yet they are rapidly disappearing as a result of the exotic food industry, habitat destruction and the cruel pet trade. Each of us can just be aware and do a few small things that can help to save turtles and tortoises for the next generation. Never buy a turtle or tortoise from a pet shop as it increases demand from the wild. Never remove turtles or tortoises from the wild unless they are sick or injured. If a tortoise is crossing a road or street, pick it up and send it in the same direction it was going – if you try to make it go back, it will turn right around again.  Sounds like some people I know.

All the Slowskys of the World appreciate Ms WWWeather's comments regarding the value of my kind. And yes, a crisp salad of fresh red leaf lettuce along with crunchy protein nibbles (or croutons, as you humans call them) always satisfies my aquatic tastebuds!!! Thanks, Miss Wildwood Weather for the kind words!
