This is the first time we have seen a tortoise in Quincy Park. Ron and I wondered if this lovely creature made its way from the native plants park that is part of the Carpinteria 213 acre Salt Marsh Reserve and Nature Park. With all the noisy clearing of the creeks that flow into the salt marshes, and the mud dust in the air, this tortoise decided to find a new home!
Quincy said some welcoming words, and then moved hoping to see some gopher activity. By the time we finished our walk our new friend had moved on.
