Was Changes In Latitudes your title from the start? Yes to both questions! I really liked the title. It contains much more than the idea of going south for a vacation. Travis's changes in attitudes is what this story is all about. Over the course of the novel, he moves from being self-absorbed to caring a whole lot more about his family and even about the endangered sea turtles that his little brother loves so much. Have you been around sea turtles other than that one in the pen that ended up in the novel?
The turtles in my story are ridleys, but Jean and I did have the opportunity to work for five days on a leatherback sea turtle project at a remote beach on the Pacific coast of Mexico.

These leatherback turtles are really big—the largest one recorded was about 2, pounds! The females we were seeing averaged around pounds. We were camping on the beach and assisting Mexican turtle biologists and Mexican students. After dark, the female leatherbacks started coming out of the sea to lay their eggs. As the females laid their 80 or so eggs, the students collected them so the poachers walking nearby in the dark wouldn't steal them and sell them. Note my photo, taken at first light, of one of the females going back into the sea. Shortly after dawn, we helped the students dig new nests in a fenced nursery.

Beds and pillows were great! We had a great experience with this property. Brenda was so accommodating- she obtained two pack n plays and a high chair for us and helped us feel very welcome. The location is ideal for families with children. We walked to the beach every morning and went shelling. In the afternoons we would drive 1 mile to the beach club where we would then swim.

Highly recommend!! Brenda was a gracious host and we thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend with family from out of state. The house is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make a meal including the all important wine opener. We hope to be back someday! Just perfect! Our accommodations were cozy and so comfortable. The kitchen is really well stocked, which we truly appreciated, having to prep and cook several meals a day!

We loved the decks, just right for sipping coffee or drinks, and watching an awesome Thunder storm! The grounds are impeccably well maintained. And the walkway to the beach was great especially for our 2 two year olds. Our first trip to Texas and we can't wait to return and stay again at Latitudes!
