On the way home today I noticed a lump in the middle of the road. As I got closer I saw that it was moving and realized it was a turtle. Slowing down I managed to stop close by; luckily there wasn't a lot of traffic. As I got closer s/he pulled back into its shell and stayed there while I carried him/her across the road in the direction s/he was already headed. (Usually when you pick them up they start swimming madly in the air which is a rather amusing sight.) I walked a little way into the greenery and underbrush and put the turtle there. Hopefully it kept wandering in that direction and didn't decide to go back across the road.
