Briarcliffe Nest #2

Judy came upon a nice, but confusing crawl.  Crawl up the wide beach, at the high tide line, turtle started to dig a body pit in the wrack line, despite all the shells and sea weed.  Abandoned the body pit, crawled directly to her right, headed further up the beach, another body pit, this one small and neat.

First body pit
