Friday, July 31st ~ Where did July go? Kiawah is overcast today, and not too humid. It looks to be a terrific day to get outside and play! 

Last night the moon looked full already.  As you drove down River Road, the moon was so large that it would swallow up a car in its glow.

Did you know? Tonight is the Full Sturgeon Moon... The fishing tribes are given credit for name, since sturgeon were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon. 

Tonight's moon is also a blue moon! The blue moon is often said to be the second full moon in a calendar month, though its original meaning was the third full moon in a season when there were four full moons in that season. Blue moons don't happen very often!


Turtle News ~ July 31, 2015 - Kiawah now has 259 nests. Hatching continues up and down the beach as well. Lights out for sea turtles!

Sadly, there is bad news. Coyotes have once again "found" our turtle nests. Click here to see photos of what awaited our Zone 3 team the morning of June 17th.

Be sure to visit The Turtle Nest web site to see photos of "our" turtles & to stay up-to-date on the 2015 turtle season! http://www.KiawahTurtles.com

Please NEVER disturb a turtle nest in ANY way! It is a crime unless you have a licensed permit from the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. Turtle patrollers are trained & know what to do. Digging or searching through a nest could kill or injure the hatchlings!
