They're just having some fun in the sun.  Like the humans at Coney Island Beach.

Wonder how long it took them to get there and also wonder how long they have been there. Thanks for sharing.

Just as I was going oooh and ahhh and enjoying the pictures and reading the nice comments by everyone I saw what Rich Iarossi, wrote and the tears started dripping down my face from laughter! (I hope I'm not on camera here in this office!)

Thanks for a great photo and thought for the day!

Not to worry, you're not on camera.  LOL


I'm glad to oblige.


They're too little...


Thanks for saying so; you're most welcome!

Agua Caliente Park: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lenderMargaret,

Agua Caliente Park is a natural warm spring that flows year round.  The turtles are indigenous.  Here's a wider look at their home.


I told you so...  LOL


A tourist from China spotted the turtles; actually, his little boy did, and I was lucky to get the photo before the noisy tourist drove them back into the water.


Good morning to you!  Thanks for being the first to comment!

They are sort of cute, aren't they?


I knew I had a photo of the pond somewhere, and you were the catalyst that made it appear!  :)

Mike - It looks warm compared to the winter we are having here in Tennessee. I think I'm ready for a vacation.

Looks like rush hour for the turtles. Great pics.

It looks as though the turtles, could the be Ninja?, have the log well protected.

Reflection photos are my favorite.  You really should copyright all of your work.

Mike, that turtle photo is incredible!  It seemed so peaceful until I read Rich's comment - now it's just funny!

Mike - Awesome pictures!  Looks like the turtles are having a wonderful time on a beautiful day.  Better than here in NY where they forecast more snow, 6-8 inches again tonight.

Hi Mike - Our youngest wants a turtle. Hmmmmmm..... ;-) I'm ready to break away to some warmth and sunshine.
