On rare occasions a leatherback sea turtle will lay her nest on one of our beaches in South Walton. This amazing creature is the largest of all living turtles ... just look at the width of her track! Look at her little hatchlings that will become enormous! This leathery turtle can grow up to 7 feet in length and exceed 2,000 pounds. I remember growing up in Ocala, FL how much I loved looking for baby turtles in Salt Springs and Silver Springs. I love extending that excitement now to my 3 year old.
To help your children learn more about protecting sea turtles and their habitats, Shelly the Sea Turtle is a wonderful book that you can pick up at the gallery or online at Blue Giraffe 30A.

Inventory has held steady at or around 217. Home sales have begun exceeding new inventory. This is a Buyer’s market so prices are not yet moving higher as excess inventory is consumed.
