Yesterday while heading eastbound on the Lynn Fells Parkway across from Melrose High School I spotted a turtle in the road trying to get back to Ell Pond. Fearing that she/he wouldn't be able to climb the curb, I pulled over hoping that other cars wouldn't run the animal over. That almost happened, but somehow the turtle did manage to climb the curb, rested a while and then made its way to the water.

A good outcome, and I happened to have my camera.
