The text and paintings on The Trowbridge Chronicles are taken from the illustrated journal of Violet Trowbridge, a shrew that once lived in a village deep in the Olympic Rain Forest. Each new post will represent a portion of Mrs. Trowbridge’s journal.

TO THE SEA

Mrs. Trowbridge wrote and sketched many pages in her journal documenting her trips to the sea. On this page she sketched one of the many games that they played on the beach. If you can find a map of Olympic National Park in Washington State, you can actually follow the route that Mrs. T and her family traveled from Wild Rose Creek, down the Quinault River to the ocean. I couldn't find a suitable map online, but you can see images of the wilderness where she lived by going to Google Image and typing in "Olympic National Park". Huckleberry Hollow, where Mrs. Trowbridge lived, is on Wild Rose Creek, in the Southwest section of the wilderness.

She wrote in her journal that the only problem with snail races is that a single one hundred yard snail race can take up most of the summer. And you thought baseball was too slow.

I can relate to watching a snail race that lasts a whole summer. Summer for me is just not long enough. Even in the heat and on those HHH sticky days, it is still my favorite time of year. Mrs. Trowbridge wrote such a lovely account of the summer journey. I wonder if a turtle race is as much fun to watch as a snail race. It could be a bit faster, I imagine. Thanks for letting Mrs. T. share her story and charming illustrations, once again.
