What the Turtle Doesn't Know...


The other night, my friend and I were walking past Turtle Park (aka Mt. Wilson Trail Park) and, since the park was having a rare quiet moment, I thought I'd stop and take a picture of the playground. 

As we walked around the pretty little park, we noticed something kind of interesting.  The eponymous "turtle" is situated in such a way that he faces away from the sign that says "Mt. Wilson Trail Park."  No wonder we all call it Turtle Park.  No one has told the turtle otherwise...

  1. The turtle is my amulet. I wear one daily. Slow and steady. This one is beautiful. Do you think it's old? From the 50's?

  2. Jim Miller-Melberg made the first one in 1959, and Wausau Tile still produces them.

  3. PA, I wouldn't be surprised if this is from the 50's/60's.

    Mike - Thank you!! I'm going to look that up. Interesting!
