          Hi Robert Ruark Inn, I am trying to make my 11 yo's dream of a turtle walk come true on BHI between July 18th and July 24th. I will have two adults, two seniors, one teen and one 11yo in my party. I am worried that the turtle walks, which I guess could go until 10:30 pm, will be too late for us to catch the ferry. There doesn't seem to be any place to stay on BHI. Please help. Thanks. Shelly
