This week’s Photo Challenge on the Daily Post called for
We’ve got our eye on your photos this week
Lazy Turtle that I am , means that I am still not taking any photos , or learning how to take them , or finding a camera or a phone to start taking them ( no phone , no camera , well I could try with my oldish tablet maybe )
But still , even if this is not a photo taken by me , I would like to share it , as I just came across it today
Can you feel the warmth of the Sun on our backs ?
That one over there on the left trying very hard to keep her eyes open is me The Turtle
I am keeping watch over dear Otter sister , she had such a playful morning on those turquoise waters , that she just fell asleep on the warm sand .
I do hope her soft snoring – please don’t tell her , she is convinced she is a Lady and that ladies don’t breath deeply through their upturned noses while sleeping – well , her breathing “softly” will keep me awake .
And so I watch , which is actually one of the things I really like to do (it wastes no energy you see , and you can even do it laying down , catching some sun on your back , and getting “freckles” all over my carapace .
I am watching the seagulls – oh please don’t shriek my sister is taking a nap , can’t you see ? she is not that small – the little kids in the distance playing with their buckets , that little rubber boat coming ashore , and that young couple holding hands coming our way ( I hope they don’t spot us or the girl surely will go ooh and ahh over us and I so want to take a picture and they’re so cute and that will surely make my sister wake up with a rrraaaaffff …and all cuteness will disappear in a second)
Oh good ! The ice cream man showed up and is heading to the other side of the beach , everyone will start following him in a minute …ah ! bliss! the sun is so warm , I will momentarily close just one eye , the other one can keep watch .
Turtle Hugs 🙂
