Back to Normal

I guess the turtles haven’t heard of social distancing. We visited Dogwood Park again yesterday and saw all this log full of turtles sunning themselves. I think I count seventeen of them on this log. I saw them off in the distance and circled around and down through the trees to get this shot.

Today was Mother’s day, and having had our shots, we decided to venture out to one or our favorite restaurants for a late afternoon dinner. We arrived at 2:00 thinking we would avoid the crowd but it was a lot like the turtles on the log above. All booths and tables were open and for the most part full. They did add extensions to the back of the booths to raise them higher. Staff wore masks, but eaters obviously did not! It was very nice to be back in a feeling of pre-Covid normal again.

    PS…maybe that is a mother turtle with all of her kids lined up to give her a hug! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜› Or maybe they are just soaking up some Vit D! πŸ˜€

    • Your response made me chuckle! Yes, It was a shot to remember. I like the idea of a mom an all her kids lined up for a photo! I think they were trying to keep warm on a cool breezy day! Thanks Carolyn!
