When Little Turtle asked what the thing was, that didn’t mean he needed to be put on it! Oh, The Girl. We need to work on .. something. Well, at least now he knows what a lathe looks like, and The Girl’s uncle was kind enough to show her basically how it works. What an educational stop on the way back from the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts!
Little Turtle thinks this business card holder is exactly the right size for a chair. Thanks to Johnny Camp from Opal Art Glass for letting The Girl take so many photos in his booth even though he was really busy! Little Turtle felt very welcome because Johnny Camp was so friendly.
Little Turtle and The Girl both agree – this is the prettiest jellyfish. Opal Art Glass does good work! Then The Father bought it for The Girl’s birthday and she hung it from her bed frame to swim through the air.
Little Turtle was very obliging and let The Girl take photos of him with these excellent jellyfish (since he knows how much The Girl loves jellyfish). Isn’t he a nice turtle!
Jellyfish made by Opal Art Glass and sold at Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
Day 1: the glass sandpipers made by Opal Art Glass have yet to realize he is not one of them. Field research will continue until their suspicions are aroused.
Little Turtle met some great octopodes in the booth occupied by Opal Art Glass at the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts. They reminded The Girl of her friend Alex, whose family runs the Seaside Aquarium in Seaside, Oregon, and who has an orangey-red octopus tattoo named Frank on her shoulder.
Little Turtle hides somewhat ineffectually from this huge fuzzy cotton worm at Bryant Woods Nature Park in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
(It’s not really a worm, it’s just a string of cottony stuff that looks like a worm. Can you identify it? Tell The Girl!)
The Girl’s father captures a rare photo of The Girl, on her way back from the “DANGER DEEP WATER DO NOT ENTER” sign. Little Turtle traveled the rest of the way back to the path in her pocket.
Little Turtle can’t help but think this sign would be more effective if a) this was deep water instead of a field or b) the sign said “WARNING: LEECHES. DO NOT ENTER.”
The Girl attempts to make up for what happened in the previous photo by putting Little Turtle on a short thing. This is much more like it. What was this rusty thing, once upon a time?
