Big event at Pt. Lookout State Park today.    Some folks were in the Store and commented how they had just attended the release of five  Kemp’s ridley sea turtles at Pt. Lookout.  According to one report, three of the five successfully swam away, but two of the turtles did a u turn and headed back to shore not wanting to venture out into the water.  The turtles were named Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph, Frosty and Buddy.  Now if it turns out that it was Buddy and Frosty who did not want to return to water, think it will be fairly obvious that it had something to do with them having received the non-reindeer names.

Here is a video of a release that was done last year by the National Aquarium.
