Watery Wednesday #115

First of all I want to wish each of you here in the U.S. a Happy Thanksgiving. To those of you abroad, I say celebrate with us and this Thursday take a moment to count your blessings and give thanks. No matter how things may be for each of us, the fact that we're able to log in and participate in getting our eyes wet means we're far better off than so, so many people. I give thanks for each of you who visit and participate. Thank you!


This isn't a stellar, spectacular shot but it was a fun on. Mr. Turtle was just floating in the lake taking it easy this day.

RULES: Create your Watery Wednesday post first then come back and enter your name and the link to your post in the spaces provided. Next, just have fun visiting the other entrants to see their posts. If you leave a comment they'll know you've visited and will visit you in return. Have fun!

There's a pond behind my house and for some reason, whenever it rains, the turtles all poke just their heads up. It looks like a bunch of thumbs sticking out of the water.

Happy Wednesday and Happy Thanksgiving!

How cute. His little paws look like small hands as they paddle through the water.

A beautiful capture! Lots of energetic water action round the turtle!

A beautiful idea for your Thanksgiving to include all of us outside the US! A great idea! Sometimes it is so easy to take what we have for granted!

Happy Thanksgiving!
