Turtles at Starcke Park

Turtles down at the river

We spotted plenty of turtles sunning themselves when we took a cruise along the drive along the Guadalupe River on the golf course side of Starcke Park. Lately there is nothing but hot, dry weather for us so there's no lack of warmth for the turtles. I spotted the one on the log and we weren't sure if what was in the water were turtles or debris. It looks like it was actually a parent turtle and a little baby turtle! I love turtles so I am thrilled to have seen so many. Makes me want to go back down there soon to see how many we can spot. Maybe I can get a better shot if we get to stop at a good spot.

So the answer to the question about yesterday's post is that the bloom came from a mesquite tree! The source of many people's allergy woes but not as bad as the dreaded cedar. :)

Are you allowed to swim in there? The water looks very inviting.

This is a nice greenish shot. I like it and had to look hard to spot the turtle.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am working on colors at the moment and this brown one don't look so good.

The bees are back in Brookville, Ohio. I hope for the rest of the year at least. I even got one on my Better Blog Writing post today. LOL

Kris, yes you can swim in the river but not in this area. Close by are some small falls.

I love the color of the river when it's like this. Very soothing.
