I have a reputation as a turtle saver.
The box turtles I saved at Turtle Crossing.
That cranky snapping turtle on State Road 3.
When I spotted the box turtle on 125 West today I was glad I had just read the blog by Mike on America by Bicycle in Michigan.
I decided it was better to encourage initiative in this reptile. I always wanted my kids to be independent, why not turtles?
I scooted my bike shoes behind him and scared him so he - under his own power - scuttled to the other side into the safety of the grass.
I have a certain fondness for turtles.
Maybe it's because we go the same speed.
