Ideas, images from the #NorthCarolinaCoast to help me brainstorm plot and characters for the third book in my "Sweet T Tales" Series for early readers. It's gotta have a shipwreck and mystery. Maybe a friendly ghost, too. Lots of aquatic activity to explore at an NC aquarium or beach camp. So many beautiful places on the NC coast! I'm having a hard time deciding which one to use for my setting!

Saving Fin

Head wound. Neck injury. Partially healed carapace. Broken flipper. Any one of these would be a serious problem for a sea turtle, and a STAR Center patient is unlucky enough to have all of these ailments, and more. Fin, a Kemp’s ridley, came to us last November, very lethargic, thin, uninterested in food, and experiencing a lot of pain. Fin was in bad shape and our team knew a lot of dedicated work would be needed to save this turtle. Carapace injury Where to Start? Fin's most…

Yes, this is the same sea turtle! Barnacle was rescued by a lifeguard at end of June after being spotted off the Avalon Pier. A rope attached to a plastic bottle was wrapped around his body, making it impossible for him to eat normally. Barnacle got cleaned up (the green plants on his shell were actually fed to Augie, one of our green sea turtles!) and he is slowly gaining weight during his stay at the Aquarium.
