"Hissing Turtle"

I was on my way home from the Memorial Day Service at Gilmore Cemetary and happened to see a turtle on the edge of Grace camera of course so stepped on the gas to get home, retrieve the camera and head back to the turtle.When I arrived back with camera in hand the turtle was still there!
She was not thrilled with my presence and promptly hissed at me...I quickly took a few pictures before she got too upset.

When Ben arrived home & I told him of my turtle experience, he said that he had seen one very large turtle about a mile east and another smaller one near Pond Road.

I just wonder if I will ever learn to take the camera with me in the car???


  1. This is so funny, because I saw that very same turtle (I think it was the same) that day on my way to Benzonia. I thought about stopping to help it across the street to Ladaka but I had to fly to my destination as you can only fly on Grace Road, hehe.
    So nice to find a neighborhood blog. I am signing on!

    Oh and I have learned to take my camera with me wherever I go. I have 3 - 1 in the car, 1 in the kitchen and 1 upstairs in case I spy something from up there. Also I have my flip camera in the car. I am prepared having learned the hard way like you :)

  2. ok, how many times did this stupid thing post my various comments? It kept telling me to go away and try again, heehee

    Ummmm....I am talking to myself :(
