In 1993, Carol went out into the Gulf of Mexico
to help with the final release of endangered Ridley Sea Turtles raised
by the National Marine Fisheries Service's Sea Turtle Headstart program
in Galveston, Texas. Seasick, worn-out, she hung onto these bitts and hawsers
for dear life. Finally, the seas calmed, and the yearling turtles were
released into the Gulf.
Bitts and Hawsers is but one view of the sea. Epic Drifts another.
