Elusive Turtles

Yesterday I was driving by a little pond just outside the town of Jefferson, SC on my way home from work. I drive by here at least twice a day, five days a week.

In the pond is a sunken pier. It’s old and disused and has caved in in the past couple of years.

Still fairly cool to me.

The Pier

Yesterday as I drove by the pier looked different. I really just caught it out of the corner of my eye. It was bumpy, shiny and black.

I drove down a mile or so and swung back around. it was worth the time.

I pulled up and the pier was covered in about twenty turtles, sunning themselves. Before I could get close enough for pics they spooked and slid off into the water. I hated I disturbed their activity.

I just wanted a pic or two.

So today I slowed down as I drove by and saw them again. I pulled over to the side of the road and grabbed a few pics with my phone from the car.

Turtles

I plan to return with my Canon soon. It was really just worth it to see all of them sitting there on the pier.

That’s it. That’s the post.
