Today is International Injury Nashru Day!  It's now been seven years since the day was initially created by Ciaran.  Read all about that here

 

In case you have forgotten the rules of Injury Nashru Day, they are pretty simple:

 

The #1 rule of Injury Nashru Day is that you must eat chocolate chip cookies.  Perhaps  you were not aware of this fact. 

Rule #2 of Injury Nashru Day is that you can only celebrate it if everybody feels good.  

Rule #3 of Injury Nashru Day is that you "do all kinds of different stuff".

 

Thus, I hope everybody is feeling good, has a cookie or two, and also makes time for other fun stuff.  Take the time to enjoy the day with your friends and family!

Just walked past this cool little motel in downtown Kanab, Utah, which is about 80 miles north of the Grand Canyon. Feels good to be walking after a day of driving.

Almost stepped on this guy as I was leaving the office. He was alive, but must be injured.

This morning on our beach walk, Rosemary and I came across a small group of people gathered by the water.  This wasn't your normal posse of beach-combing vacationers though. This group was lined up with a purpose. As we got closer, we noticed a man lowering a red bucket onto the sand and then a stream of baby sea turtles climbing out.

 

We found out that this was the last group of stragglers from a set of 97 hatchlings that emerged from a set of nests in the dunes a few days ago.  This group had trouble getting to the water then, however, so the Sea Turtle Rescue team had gathered them up for this supervised release.  Apparently it helps to have lots of people around to discourage the sea gulls from picking them off.

 

 

I was following this one little guy who went off by himself and was struggling to go straight:

Here he is as he made his way into the water:

 

 

And finally swimming:

Spotted by Rosemary on the porch.  Managed to get this shot in before he hopped/flew away.
