Yesterday ...

       on my Loxahatchee walk, I met two local girls on a rescue mission and they asked me to take part in it.

              

     Noticing that I had a camera, they stopped and asked if I wanted to take a photo of their turtle. It seems that a new housing development is going up near where they live and to make room for the new construction, some wildlife habitat is being destroyed.

         

                

      They said that they rescued this turtle and wanted to release it in a place where it was sure to have a better life, I think they chose the perfect place.

                

         Good job Susan and Marissa. BTW ... I did take their E - Mail address and will send the link for them to stop here to see the photos and to read your comments.  

                

     The rest of the photos are other things that caught my eye along the way. I am so loving these walks, to me this is as much a part of what Florida is about as the sun, sand, and surf.

                

     Have a good week ahead.

Rescuing an animal is always a good thing, as long as it's not injured and won't hurt the rescuer! Nice job, kids!

Great pics, Coy, as always!

XOXO
