Just great to be able to see turtles in their natural habitat. I have only ever seen them in a zoo. Best wishes, Pete.,

thanks Pete. Yes, I always look forward to seeing them on their favorite log. They’re so charming!
A pond where we frequently fish before it becomes too hot has huge red-eared turtles scrambling up on the rocks. I’m a huge fan of turtles, and I’m glad to have them close to home!
Me too! I love to watch them!
Aren’t they though? thank you! 😊
I ‘m a turtle fan, too! Not sure what makes them so endearing.
Hi Kathy, I agree they are so charming! ☺
When I was a child, I had a copy of Edward Eager’s ‘Magic by the Lake,’ which I read multiple times before eventually acquiring the other books in the series. Such books gave me my first insight into US language and culture, but, even so, it never occurred to me that having turtles in lakes could be a perfectly ordinary thing. To me, as a young child, the fact that there was a turtle at all was ‘magical’ – even before it could talk!
Great to see them just being turtles!
Wonderful story! Yes I love that the turtles live in Lake Wasington. They are often basking in the sun when we take a walk there. I’ve seen 5 at once on that log. thanks for your comment. ☺
