He's having a stretch and wondering what the options are today..
Ginnie Hart: WEEKEND, Chris. WEEKEND. (I know you're retired, as am I, and every day is weekend for us. However, with Astrid still a working woman, weekends really ARE different and special.)
Wouah ....magnifique !!
Bon week-end Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Claudine.

I will certainly stretch and relax. We had builders in and around our house for four weeks and they finished the job yesterday. Today they will remove the rubble and we will be the kings of our castle again.

BTW - great shot and it looks as if the turtle is waving you on smile
Ginnie Hart: Good for you, Louis, to have a project like that finished. That would be a HIGH-FIVE to us both! smile

It was so funny to see these little creatures 'sunbathing'... I hope it holds on to the stick.. Great picture, Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Astrid. There's something very "smiley" about seeing the turtles sunbathe like this. smile

haha!! It is using the log as a springboard, I wonder. It will take a run at it and jump off. Thinking of stretching, that is really what I should be doing now...
Ginnie Hart: Give yourself a high-five once you're done, Alan! smile

Yes, you have deserved a long weekend - what a delight to see such a beautiful turtle - and to capture it so beautifully!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Philine. We all need a good weekend before starting out another week! smile
Having a nice warm in the sun. Delightful pic Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Even for us redheads, Bill, a little bit of sun won't hurt! smile
En pleine élongation, elle est amusante.
Un cliché Sympa.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It was fun to see this fella stretching out, Pascale. Merci.

What a lovely creature, Ginnie. Was ti quite small?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lisl. I think it was about the size of a grapefruit? Not too big.

Excellent clarity and light captured here!!
I love that you caught it stretching like that. Awesome!
What a cute little character, he/she looks good colour popped against the background.
A little yoga in the warm sun. A sweet shot.
