Getting ready to leave at 3:15 in the afternoon, I happen to look over the boardwalk railing and noticed a soft-shelled turtle below in the sand.
Quite large at around 15 inches across its shell, it was either digging or trying to cover over something.
(Coincidentally I remembered a very large soft-shelled turtle in the same exact spot during last years vacation.)
