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.

Mrs. Trowbridge spent much of her idle time crafting clever stories and limericks for her children and grandchildren. Little did she know that her stories would be read not just in the rain forest, but around the world. Click on "blog archive" on the left to see previous episodes.

This past weekend we returned to Huckleberry Hollow country once again. We stayed on the shores of Lake Quinault in the Quinault Rain Forest, near where Mrs. T once lived. One of my favorite places on the planet is the Lake Quinault Lodge on Lake Quinault. I spent part of my weekend writing and drawing in the lovely main room with it's big fireplace (see lodge web site). Before motels, there were lodges, and Lake Quinault Lodge is one of the grandest of them all.

It looks like a dinosaur tail. I would be slightly concerned. I can't wait to read what happens next!

So the egg hatches! That is a very big tail for a tine shrew to be faced with ... I hope the other end is friendly.

Bron, I have given you an award. You may claim it on my blog if you wish. If you are busy busy busy watching with the shrew family waiting for that egg to fully hatch, we will understand.

All the best!
