The 10,000 Olive ridley nests that were deposited here just prior to my visit are due to hatch in January. Although I missed the last arribada by just a few days, perhaps my next visit will coincide with the hatching and mass exodus of thousands of tiny little hatchlings making their way to the sea. I can hope at least, that the timing of my arrival will be better next time around.
