+ Blast of good news
Connie and Joe Ellison recently returned from a five-week cruise that started in Alaska and ended in Hong Kong and had a blast of good news to share. Their son, Bruce Ellison, will wed Karen Kohn, from Boston, Dec. 20. The couple met on the beach on Longboat Key about a year-and-a-half ago and discovered not only each other, but that her folks live directly above his folks at Fairway Bay. Kohn is a computer expert, a porcelain-doll maker and a singer; she will relocate to Rapid City, S.D., where her husband-to-be practices law. Connie Ellison also happily reports that her grandson and his wife are expecting twins in April, and that a granddaughter has a new man in her life.

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.
