The beach holds more treasures than you can imagine: meet this large tortoise, owned by Greg since he was 5 years old. Greg and Cindi were at the beach doing a photo shoot with their two young sons, their dog, and their ever-present tortoise. Greg confided that he didn’t realize Fred was a lady for many years.
Fred is a good 10-12″ long, if my memory serves me. He was in a box, and Greg let him out so I could take his photo near the jetty. More jetty photos to come, but this is my first tortoise-on-the-beach, so Fred wins the day.
And there are some who say it’s turtles (tortoises?) all the way. Could be!
