Out my window

So I was feeling all sorry for myself because it seemed like everyone was seeing turtles today and I had yet to see one this fall.

As I meandered over to the kitchen sink to wash my hands, what did I see out my window?

A turtle!

Look at those pudgy little arms. If he wasn’t a snapper, I’d squeeze ’em.

Oh, ok ... bye Turtle!

Gosh it was a good day!

  1. Oh, that was GREAT! I can’t believe he just sauntered into your yard! And I agree, he’s very photogenic from any number of angles… a real beauty! Plus, you were on my mind because we were in Savannah this weekend and walked into a groovy vintage shop and the couple running the store had a Yorkie … and he was a complete character! They really are the most adorable dogs … Have a fun day!

  2. How neat is that? I just started blogging and I think I’ll be much like you. My interests are the wild things that make their way to our house. I have a small box turtle as a pet and we have plenty of snapper turtles on the roads in my area but I’ve never seen one walking around in my yard. I guess that’s like me finding an Armadillo in my yard. Only thing is, they’re not rare around here! Thanks again for sharing and keep it up!

  4. The way you write about your life reminds me of the things I like the most about living. I have country moments all the time in my San Francisco backyard. Can’t really get away if that is your thing.

  5. Awesome photos! I love turtles, be it those that live on land or in the sea. I’ve had the pleasure of researching endangered species of turtles (Diamondback Terrapins). And there’s a pond in the park I live by that is the home to hundreds of turtles. Thanks for sharing these photos–they made me smile! ๐Ÿ˜€
