The Turtles of Sleepy Hollow Lake
- It Feels So Good! -

We could see the expression of pleasure of this basking turtle, as if he or she were saying "It feels so good!"  We watched silently from our canoe at the outstretched and uplifted head and the way he or she rested upon his or her plastron (lower shell) with extended rear legs reaching for the sun.  From the markings on the shell this appears to be a Map Turtle.  Let us all resolve to enjoy the wildlife around us without harming it.

Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
