Sandy Eyes and the Explosion

On June 25th a bundle of Green turtles rose up. The one above was a few of the first to reach the surface, but it faced a small problem: blindness via sand. Outta the ground, but still in the dark. These front runners made it out first, but took their sweet time before they fully emerged and let the impending explosion boom out. The above photo is just a few Chelonia, but after these youngsters finally got out of the way, the whole gang shot up in spades. Seventy-nine total by sundown; with them all let loose to the ocean at 2am the same night.
