The Turtle Lady

A while ago I mentioned the woman who "walks" her turtle through the park in our little downtown.

Well, I stopped to talk to her on Tuesday and just happened to have my camera.

This one is the bigger of the two.

He really IS gorgeous!

Look at those colors!

This little one, she rescued when he was the size of a quarter. That happened eight years ago.

He was really very quick moving. I was surprised at how fast he was moving. A curious squirrel was checking the little one out while I chatted with the turtle lady.

The turtle lady used to have three under her watch, but one guy went AWOL. Although she can't be sure, she suspects that a biker passing by stopped and picked him up. She's still looking for him.
