Yellow tape signals caution around a sea turtle nest a few blocks south of The Don CeSar Hotel on a busy Memorial Day at Pass-a-Grille Beach.  Loggerheads begin nesting during the spring and summer along many Suncoast beaches.  Female turtles can lay 100 to 150 eggs on average — and each female can lay an average of three to eight nests.
