APRIL FOOLS —
For this issue, the Longboat Observer has teamed up with an area company to test one of its newest line of products: edible ink and paper. Unlike previously released edible paper, which is more like dissolving Styrofoam, the company’s new product looks and feels like actual paper — and tastes great. Throughout this issue, all red ink will taste like strawberries. The company hopes to market the product to dessert companies who could use it to top cake and pastries — or companies looking to jazz up their annual reports. Please send your reviews of our new edible paper to Mallory Gnaegy at firstname.lastname@example.org.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: Leaving the Nest
Unhatched sea turtle eggs lay on the beach after Cyndi Seamon, a longtime Longboat Key Turtle Watch volunteer, excavated a nest Wednesday, July 9. Fellow volunteer Lindsey Conrad then separates the eggs to see how many hatched and possibly made it to the water. The Longboat Key Turtle Watch patrols the beaches at sunrise each morning.
