So as I’m sure I’ve talked about before, when I was a kid growing up, I always loved box turtles.  In fact, just this summer, we ran into a couple of painted turtles on our vacation (for the first time in years) and it brought back some great memories.

Fast forward to today and while I still love them, I’ve also grown to love their relative, the sea turtles. That’s in part due to reading the book Voyage of the Turtle by Carl Safina, so seeing this article the other day made me very happy.

The article is entitled “Loggerhead sea turtles nesting in record numbers in Southeast” by Mary Jo DiLonardo over at the Mother News Network. To me, it’s just cool that they’ve be around since the dinosaurs and what kid doesn’t love dinosaurs!?
