Where are the turtles?

Hist 4th ward

We struck out for new territory…re-visiting a long-ago*-favorite walking spot, this relatively new park at what once was Ponce Springs, and now has new apartment blocks framing it. We dodged raindrops…and saw only one pair of mallards…and no turtles.

Grt blue tracks

We did see evidence (I’m pretty sure of this) of an earlier visit by a GreatBlue…but s/he’d made tracks. Harharhar.

*Long-ago meaning before TheFootThing. [several beats] Also, the unstated subhead of this may well be: “I took blood from a snake.” Not my words, but reported to be those of TheVeterinarian.
