This beautiful reptile is a tortoise which is a member of the turtle family. It looks like he is taking a little time to relax in the sun.


This lovely photo was taken by my friend Andrea Pappas Merrill. Our families have known each other since this bad boy was just an egg. Okay, maybe not quite that long.

Happy International Turtle Day!
