Toasted turtle, fried figs

.
A sad shot for today's Camera-Critters.
This evening I took a walk around the spring, just ten minutes walk from home.
It looks so different after last Sunday's forest fire.

I found a toasted turtle (dead),

fried figs,

and stripped stones in ancient terrace walls all up and down the hills.
.
Sigh . . .

So sad, what a desolation.

Oh, poor turtle. The figs will grow back - they always do and spread everywhere!
I did not realize you had a fire so close to your home. It must have been scary.

Reading the title I thought of some mysterious food festival...

Oh, wow! What a tragedy. I'm fortunate to never have experienced anything like this close to home!

It is sad to see the devastation, but it is good to document it.

Oh, I'm so sorry, Dina. We saw some devastation on Maui also. There are drought conditions here in Hawaii and it's made it ripe for fires.
