Remembering the Turtle Lady.

One of the people who gave me the deepest appreciation for the sea was Eleanor Fletcher, better known as the Turtle Lady of Juno Beach. I first met her when I was walking along the beach with my family where I became fast friends with her. When I later found out she needed help setting up a museum for her collection, I volunteered to help her out. It was the beginning of a remarkable journey that taught me much about sea turtles, ocean life and the need to preserve it for future generations. The highlight of this journey was my getting interviewed for a TV show that highlighted interesting people around Florida. Mrs. Fletcher was certainly one of them.
Mrs. Fletcher passed away March 3 at age 92. I am saddened to have lost such a wonderful friend.
