The story about the star tortoise


Star-tortoise

So the other day, while I was out for a walk with nephew #1 and my niece, we were invited to a neighbour's compound to check out their plants and pets.


Nephew #1 is a nature lover so naturally he gravitated to the neighbour's star tortoises. He was excited to take photos of course.


The niece wasn't that excited. Check out the photo...she was a little freaked out! *LOL*


Playing along with Once upon a...sketch and ARTastic challenge.

P/s: Happy weekend friends! :)
