Splash from the Myrtle Beach Pelicans even came out to see what was going on.

The Palmetto State Roller Girls take a break from creating their roller skate sand sculpture at the NMB Turtle Trot to have a photo shoot with the NMB Turtle Trot mascot "Bella "Luna,"   Emily Wayne.

Holt with Sharkee from Ripley's Aquarium. Sharkee has Holt's Sea Turtle Patrol volunteer hat on...wonder if he will walk the Patrol with Holt in the morning!

Well, maybe Sharkee is a little hungry.  Sea Turtles and Sharks do not mix!

Maybe Kids are better shark food!
