First two nests quickly adopted

It didn't take long for our first two hatchery nests to be adopted.  The first that has 118 eggs and was moved from Paradise Beach was adopted by Tim Wardman, the owner of Rhooms, an importer of furniture to Cape Verde. 

The second nest of 65 eggs was adopted by Stevie Windows who said that he is hopeful that all 65 hatchlings will be born, but is worried about the condominium and maintenance fees in the meantime.
