We reported on Friday that neighborhood was about to adopt a colorful turtle on an intersection close to Hamilton. Well, here’s an update, along with some photos of the nearly completed project:
When I left my house at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, I passed a small group of neighbors armed with brooms to prep the intersection of 41st and Interlake for its transformation.
By Sunday afternoon, I was amazed by the group’s progress: a graceful sea turtle with yellow eyes, and a shell with a geometric pattern in yellow, red, blue, and green was already swimming in place. Blue, white and green bubbles seem to dance and float alongside its flippers.
There were 20 neighbors on hand who were sharing a few laughs, listening to U2 in the background, and munching on sandwiches. With most of the work completed, they began to paint the chalked outline of the images in black.
Check out the newest addition to our neighborhood and let us know what you think.
