Yesterday, the Turtle Center on Jekyll Island held their Turtle-Ween. We rode over to check it out.
The activities were mostly geared to kids. Face painting, making a Halloween bag, pumpkin, and turtle; fishing for treats (pulling up cans, newspapers, and plastic at first so the kid could sort; making a turtle cookie (green icing, gummies for barnacles, sprinkles for algae, that type of thing); a magician; and of course, a hayride. Oops, that's a Turtle Ride!
There were also critters to pet: things like a baby alligator, a tortoise and lots of snakes! Ugh! The kids loved the awful things, though. Here's a photo of the tortoise making its bid for freedom!
And when things palled, we went back inside and visited the patients in the turtle hospital!
Perfect weather, not too hot and not too cold. All in all, a great day!
