Saved Another Turtle

Today I got off to a late start. It was already 80+ degrees at 10am. I decided not to kill myself and just do 25 miles with just a few major climbs. I did see other cyclists but not as many as normal for a Saturday.
It must be turtle season because, again I found a big Boxer in the middle of the road. This guy was not as friendly as the other and quickly closed up tight. While I was trying to get it, a car came up and almost ran it over. I picked up the turtle and placed it on the grass in the direction it looked like it was going.
This was a Hotter than Hell Day, but still better than not riding at all.
KEEP RIDING!!

Just an hour ago I posted to my blog (Outside Up North) about saving yet
another turtle today. Today's was a painted turtle, and yesterday's was
a large snapper. As I ride my bike around, I try to save as many animals
as I can, and decided to write about it.

Then a few minutes ago my husband piped up, "Hey, look at this guy's
blog..." and sent me your address. WOW, another turtle rescue. It's
great to see other cyclists helping these critters across the road. As I
understand it, taking them to the side they're heading is just the thing
to do unless it's dangerous over there (big dog, quarry, etc.). And most
of them are either migrating for mates or setting out to lay eggs. I
love turtles.

Thanks for your rescue.

Best wishes,

Tamia
