She must have been so tired, first the crawl up the beach into the bush line, dig a hole about 2 ft deep and at least 1.5 metres wide. (Sorry for mixing the units but I suck at guesstimates). Often they have to break through a lot of roots etc and sometimes they have to pick new spots and start over because there are too many. Our first turtle did that, so we went to find another turtle.
