no hurling on the shell dude. i just waxed it.

I couldn't resist the Crush quote from Finding Nemo.Why? Because I had the coolest experience Friday night. A 'I can finally cross this off my bucket list' kind of experience.
Friday, at Isle of Palms, two loggerheads and one kemp's ridley turtle were released back into the ocean after being rehabilitated for months at the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital.
It was one of the coolest, most beautiful things I've seen. So amazing.

 {notice the little boy holding the "Beaufort" sign. that's the turtle's name!}



There were hundreds of locals and tourists lined up to see the three turtles take the long walk to the ocean. It was the perfect way to start my weekend.
I knew pictures wouldn't do this experience justice so I made a little video. Enjoy!
