Turtles Go Round and Round

We love to vacation in Florida, and Skipper's Fish Camp is one of our favorite stops along the way.  We go there for the food, which is outstanding, but we also love to just stroll around and enjoy the critters. Here are some of the turtles drifting lazily around the pool.

It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for taking pictures.  I just love the shadows cast by the swimming turtles.

Hi there. Aren't you cute! I used to have turtles when I was a kid, back in the day when you could get turtles at the pet shop. I called them Perky and Flipper. Now I just enjoy them in their natural habitat, or in this case, their swimming pool.

Here's the little fellow, up close and personal. 

"Hey, where's my shadow?"

No, that's not a real alligator, although there was one in the river. I'll get to him in another post.

Please enjoy the turtles going round and round, and as always, thanks for visiting!

  1. I LOVE THESE PICTURES!!!! What a beautiful place, first of all. Those turtles are awesome. My favorite picture is the first one. You mentioned the shadows... on the first I saw the bottom shadow first and then had to look for the turtle. It is such a great photo!

    1. Hey Katherine, thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you enjoyed the turtles. It was such fun to watch them swimming and the sunlight made for some great pics. They really were going round and round! ;)
