Notes

Was getting attacked by a Pearly-eyed Thrasher before we showed up (visible in the background of one of the photos). The turtle eventually made it into the ocean. No idea how it ended up on the grass in the middle of our resort, but my best guess is that it was brought (and dropped) by a bird.
