Viewer Merri Raleigh sent in videos of an adorable group of baby turtles getting ready for a swim Thursday around 7 a.m. at Myrtle Beach State Park.

The Grand Strand has experienced a wealth of riches this season as it pertains to sea turtle nests.

In mid-July, South Carolina United Turtle Enthusiasts, or S.C.U.T.E for short, reported there were 290 nests for the season so far, from North Myrtle Beach to the North Inlet.
