Look what I found on my walk

Yesterday morning Molly and I headed out to take the kids to the bus and then head out on our morning walk. We didn't get too far on our walk this morning before we came across something that needed our help. 

We were very close to the water where we take a trail for our 5km walks. The HUGE turtle started across the road! I got closer trying to figure out how in the world I was going to get this big guy across the road as he was in a really bad spot that cars fly down a hill and out to the end of this road. He was at the bottom of the hill. I remember last year I learned that when moving a turtle you are suppose to move them in the same direction they were going. I had no idea how I would move him especially with Molly with me. I was lucky that just as we were standing in the middle of the road with the turtle this guy who works for Parks Canada was coming to work and was parking his car in the lot close to us. He came to us right away and there was another car that came that had a blanket. The guy was able to get this big guy across the street but not before I stopped a couple cars flying towards us. 

I love living in a smaller town close to water and parks, you just never know what you will see from ducks, beavers and turtles.

Here are some pictures!

  1. Great pictures! I've never seen a turtle like this in real life. :) So nice of you to take the time to make sure it didn't get hit by a car.

      Thanks Erika. This is the first turtle I have seen this big! I have seen lots of small ones when I was young.

  2. How cool! :) I am happy to hear you were able to help the big guy make his way safely :)
