Traveling Turtle Girl, Farewell

Kirsten Dahlen, better known to Pensacola Beach residents as "The Traveling Turtle Girl" was discovered dead in her bed Tuesday afternoon. She had gone home to attend the baptism of Sebastian, a newborn nephew, and continued posting photos and updates on her blog.

Read the tragic news as reported by her friend and turtle nest-saving colleague, Barrier Island Girl, here and here. Kirsten's brother, Sean, has posted the public notice on his sister's blog.

We hope to have more by way of a memorial in a day or two.
