Wordless Wednesday! November 17, 2021

While spending 2 weeks in Loreto, Baja Sur Mexico
we had the pleasure of meeting little Houdini...
a year old tortoise! So darn cute!
And here are his parents Barney and Vida! 

Barney and Vida are 9 years old and HUGE.
They love being fed lots of fruit and veggie scraps
around 2:30pm when they emerge  from their burrow!
Have a lovely Wordless Wednesday!


  1. So cute is that Houdini, but he could have been called Speedy too.

  2. Houdini is determined to go places, isn't he!

  3. So cute. Tortoises are always thought of as being slow, but are remarkably fast for their size.

  4. AWW! I agree sooo cute had to laugh at Speedy 🐢 :-)

    Have an Houdinitastic week Kathe 👍

  5. nice to see turtles, we don´t have any in Sweden.

  6. Wow! I like the little Houdini and turtles in general.
    All the time I read about some creatures that lives more than humans, I asked myself how to find a way of communication...
    Thanks for sharing the images with your new friends!
    Happy WW and a fine week!

  7. They have very interesting shells.

  8. Another beautiful header.
    Houdini you are quick as greased lightning and I bet your pawrents have a time keeping up with you
    Hugs Cecilia

  9. Aw, so adorable. What a wonderful name for the little guy. I would have been there to feed them.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Love and hugs all around. ♥♥♥

  12. WoW! Look at those turtle! They are HUGE!

  13. Little Houdini is quite energetic. I have a feeling that he (?) is a little bit of a troublemaker. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
