Cruising With The Turtles

Turtles Getting On Board

One by one, the turtle was getting on board this plank of wood. It was a beautiful day for a cruise around the pond at Metro Park.

Turtles Aboard
Since the turtles loved sun tanning, the plank of wood didn't move much! It waited for all turtles to board the ship going nowhere.

Late Comers
I spent quite a bit of time watching this group of turtles, waiting for the cruise ship to take off, but the turtles just took a dip in the water when they got hot, and back to their tanning salon.

oh my, they look so cute! as a child I have been fascinated about turtles..the way they'd hide their heads and then magically pop them out and their slow movement...my mom used to tell us the story of the monkey and the turtle each night to put us to sleep...I love that photo here where the plank did not move much and waited for all turtles to board :-)

The turtles seem to enjoy their journey on the ship to nowhere. :)

So cute, we have a couple of turtles that frequent the pond in our neighborhood that like to sun on the platform of the fountain but are really camera shy.

They need a couple of little oars to get it going! How cute.
