I have always been a nature girl. Nothing revitalizes me more than time spent in the great outdoors. And nothing delights me more than an unexpected brush with Mother Nature every now and then.
Two weeks ago, I met a friend for lunch. Afterwards, we walked her dog down the path behind the restaurant that leads to the koi pond. All of a sudden, I gasped as an unexpected sight caught my eye.
Turtles! There were turtles as far as the eye could see! Turtles on the rocks. Turtles in the grass. Turtles here and there. Turtles everywhere!
I was so excited to see turtles marching in February! I could hardly wait to share the experience with my husband and friends – but I had to, since the camera was home and my hubby was out of town!
So, for our anniversary, I suggested that we return to that restaurant for lunch in the hopes that the turtles would still be there. When we arrived, we preceded lunch with a nature walk and were rewarded by the presence of my shelled friends! We watched them until the air began to chill, then went inside to share a fabulous meal!
I hope you enjoy the turtles as much as I did – I especially hope they bring a touch of spring to those of you who have had one too many wintery weekends!
Have a great weekend and stay tuned – my OWOH RAK giveaways are just around the corner!
