On my way to work this morning I took a short side trip next to Back Bay and then intended to go around the back of the train station and up to the main road again. When I got behind the train station, though, the car in front of me had stopped and the driver was talking with a man standing in the road. I didn’t care, and I waited a few minutes, and the car slowly moved on. When it did, though, the man in the road waved at me and then pointed down to the ground. Then I saw the reason for the stopped car … there was a big snapping turtle in the road! I’ve only seen one before, and it wasn’t nearly this big. This guy looked like he was headed down the Bridge Falls Path for a morning walk!
This is why I keep a camera in the car with me at all times!
