I love walking under the sun. My shell is not too strong. I often got shell disease. Mommy still doesn’t know why, but maybe…I said maybe…it’s because of me being a morph, maybe it makes my shell vulnerable.

She tries to strengthen my shell by letting me out as often as possible. The sun will make my shell better. I liked walking around the front yard and let the sun makes my beautiful shell shines like gold.

The first 4 pictures were taken early 2010. And the last 4 were taken in the middle of that year.

Didn’t I look beautiful? I looked like a true adventurer, ready for the wild world 😉

Unfortunately, that was 2 years ago…our new home has no garden/yard…so I am becoming a sitting type turtle…enjoying the sun without moving much 😉

    That’s too bad you no longer have a garden to explore.

    I remember when I was a youngster having a pet tortoise and she used to always be running off when adventuring in the back yard, her name was Susie and she was a lovely tortoise. Thank you for reminding me of this, I have not thought about her in such a long time so this was a nice memory. Thank you 🙂 🙂 Kroten the Explorer, I like that a lot 🙂

    Sorry you’re not getting out as much buddy, you need to find a turtle park to run around in, just like we have dog parks! 🙂

    Big wags,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

  5. We have one “sitting type” beagle and a cat. We have a yard/garden…they are just lazy. I love hearing about your turtle adventures!! Have a lovely day!

      Hi Kris 🙂
      I used to walk around the yard but I guess getting older also makes me getting lazier to do an exploration.
      Have a lovely day to you too 🙂

  6. The pictures look great – you have such a pretty shell! Sorry to hear you no longer have a beautiful garden to explore 😦
