We’re also tracking Hurricane Beryl in the Dove Hurricane Guide which may impact the southern coast of Texas. Beryl was a Category 5 at one point.

If you are heading back to the beach, watch for the sea turtle nests. It’s that time of year, and there was big news this week from the Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch and Shorebird Monitoring, A record number of nests were recorded with 546. Nesting season runs through September so remember to dim the lights at the beach and fill in any holes dug in the sand so hatchlings don’t get trapped.
