Turtle Teleportation: Vassar Road

As always, we knew this wouldn’t end well¬†for the small lump just in front of the car’s rear wheel (clicky for more, albeit fuzzy, dots):

So I stopped to lend a hand:

A fumbling hand, as it turned out, on the turtle’s slippery shell:

Turtle 1364 - Vassar Rd - 2018-05-20

A belly-up turtle in the middle of the road knows the solution to the Halting Problem.

I hoped a secluded spot under a pine tree was closer to its destination:

However, if the turtle is a female in search of an egg-laying site, then she and all her progeny must cross Vassar Road in the other direction to reach the Mighty Wappinger Creek.

We’ll teleport them if we see them, too …
