Hundreds Gather and Cheer as 8 Sea Turtles are Released at Craigville Beach!

Hundreds of spectators gathered and cheered as 8 Sea Turtles were released back into the waters at Craigville, Beach, Centerville. These Kemp’s ridley turtles were rescued from various Cape beaches in 2016, received emergency care at the New England Aquarium, and then transferred to the National Marine Life Center (Bourne) for more rehabilitation. The crowds were treated to an “up close & personal” with the Sea Turtles… & it only took a matter of minutes for the turtles to cross the beach from their carry boxes into the waters…and be Happy Together! Enjoy!

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown. As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis. Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
