We walked really early again to feed the turtles so that we didn’t get hot. It was cloudy out, but the yellow irises beside a different pond I wanted to take pictures of had faded. sigh. I did get some distant shots of herons, so hoping some had turned out.
This is a picture of the red slider turtle that wasn’t interested in the aquatic food, but he was much more interested in us. He came right up, scared my granddaughter, and she lost her water bottle in the pond. So I had to retrieve it. No trashing the pond. But she cried because she’d lost it. I had a bottle of water to share with her.
But she had sat down on the cement, snacks and bottle of water out, ready to have a picnic when the friendly turtle came right up to us and she panicked. I was hurriedly grabbing her snacks, her backpack, she’d knocked over her water bottle and I couldn’t grab it as it rolled down the semi-steep incline. He was just so interested in us. It was so cute.
And that was our turtle adventure! Today, we had a ton of turtles come up to see us. No pancake turtles today though.
Pancake turtle from last turtle day adventure.
Okay, have to figure out what to prepare for lunch!
Have a fun day!!
