Travel theme: Smooth


Smooth bronze turtle -- Knoxville ZooEven bronze turtles have a textured shell with bumps and ridges and squarish shapes.  Just like real turtles do. But if you’re a tortoise at the Knoxville Zoo where kids one right after another take turns riding you and posing for pictures and patting you good-bye, you’re not patterned at all.   You’re smooth.  Patternless, as it were. Yep.  Smooth and loved.

For more smooth photos, check out Ailsa’s blog Where’s My Backpack for her Travel theme: Smooth.  Right here.

To see this smooth tortoise, head to the Knoxville Zoo, 3500 Knoxville Zoo Drive, Knoxville, TN 37914;
