It was week 6 of the Turtle Races and we are half way through the season !! We saw 366 Turtle Racers today and that matched exactly our number from last year!! The weather was perfect, a little coolish and with a nice breeze. The turtles were loving it !After over 600 racers last week, today was a piece of cake !! The crowd today was very rambunctious..they were dancing and hula hooping like crazy!! All ages were having a ball !! I overheard one Grama say...where else can you go and act up like this ? Everyone was equally excited for their turtles when they raced. As usually happens there are great stories to be told each week. This week we met the Simpson family from Sebastian Florida. They were on their way further north when they came upon information about our World Famous Turtle Races and decided they had to stop and participate. So, Dad, who is an elementary school principle, Mom and their 3 boys "raced" with us for the afternoon and had a delightful time. We know people are with us from all over the globe and we love to entertain them. Let's see who we meet next week. Until next Wednesday..See you at the races.
