Harvey’s Homecoming

With his travels around Virginia soon coming to a close, no adventure would be complete without checking out a little bit of fun in his own home town. Harvey visited the Mathews County Farmers Market this past Saturday to spread turtle crossing awareness. Harvey the box turtle made many new friends and had some fun exploring the courthouse square. He did run into a few fans of his blog and succeeded in spreading awareness about turtles crossing the road and how people can help.

    This is awesome! I thought I was one of the few left who stops for box turtles. I learned from my late father, who would have stopped traffic on I-95 if there were a turtle trying to cross. Keep up the good work!!!
