As we entered the fesitival area, Coyote-chan squealed: "Dude! There's like a - squid - head- person - thing!"
Indeed there was, and we set off in hot pursuit, me calling: "Excuse me! Um. Mrs. Squid!" Mrs. Squid graciously consented to be photographed with the cephalopod-obsessed girls.
...I still have no idea why there was a squid lady with a mandolin.
The Charles River itself.

Mitch Ryerson is a nationally known studio furniture artist, and has participated in the River Festival many times throughout its 28-year history. He is best known in Cambridge for his public art project in and around the city, through which dying trees are carved into public seating. Ryerson proposed reincarnating Star Wheel, a wooden sculpture powered by human movement, and is working with Cambridge high school art students to create graphics to update the piece.

"Camera off, Mommy."
I hope people are enjoying my pictures-of-the-day. I'm enjoying them. :) I've taken more pictures over the past month than I had the first half of 2007 put together, I think. I like being able to show you little things, like my shortcut to the library, my cats sleeping. Little things that are bits of my day and my world.
