I've always wanted a summer home. I've read so many books about families who head to some cottage on the beach for an extended summer vacation. Doesn't it sound marvelous? Lazy days, ocean air, crabbing and low country boils?
While it doesn't seem to be in my cards, our tortoise, Boxley, is more fortunate. She is a red footed tortoise, and spends most of her time living in a large tank in the twins' room. But in the summer months, she gets to visit her summer home.
For now, we have created this using a puppy playpen. Her water is there and her log for shade. It can be moved every couple of days so she gets fresh greenery. She loves roaming through the grasses, eating leaves and clover and the occasional worm.
Happy Fourth of July folks! Hope you have a great one.
