Boston spotted turtles enjoying the sun at Jamaica Pond today.
Between the 2 logs, I counted 23 today, an all-time personal best!
I like turtles.
And make it snappy.
May/June: turtles react to an approaching kayak by jumping off their log/rock and into the water, one at a time like a synchronized swimming team.
August: turtles just look up, see a boat, stay put.
Interestingly enough, I ran into a lady walking her Russian Tortoise on Summer Street, Spring Hill, Somerville just a little bit ago. Gosh darnit, but wasn't that little reptile On A Mission. Since I was the custodian of a Mediterranean Tortoise for a good bit of time, the Russian's "Help" and I had a fair bit to chat about.
She's got a site up called tort time dot org (or check out tort time on Tumblr). It's loverly. Also keeps the lawyers confused. (snort!)
