Friday Andrea was playing in the back yard and ran inside yelling that she saw a turtle.Â She had noticed that we had an Eastern Box Turtle for a visitor.Â We had not seen one in our yard since Mark and Andrea were very little!
We wanted Allan to see him, so we placed him in a safe spot for an hour. Then we returned him to the back yard where he could find food and be safe.Â Every so often, someone would run between the rain drops and look for him. He stayed in the back all afternoon and evening.
On Saturday, Audrey ran out looking for him and he was gone. She was disappointed, but we keep watching for our visitor to return.
