David rediscovered a box turtle the other day. We think it is the same one that David found 3 years ago, this based on the leftover markings from nail polish on his back. David actually found it early one morning and put it carefully in a box on the deck so Will and I could see it when we got up. The crafty beast got out of the box and either carefully made it down the stairs or tumbled without injury onto the grass below. Either way, he wasn't on the deck when we went looking for him. Will & I searched high & low, to no avail.

Yesterday, David found him in the skimmer.
Thankfully, the poor little guy was able to keep his head out of the water. He didn't seem any worse for wear, and was actually much cleaner after his "bath".
Will named him Charlotte, most likely after a favorite pig & spider movie. After naming him, and marking him again, we let him go at the edge of the woods. We're hoping we'll see him again sometime when the girls are home.
