KidFile#31: Diary Of A Pet Turkey

Meet Marker the turkey.

My friend Joanne has published a children’s book based on her family’s pet turkey Marker. I had the privilege of photographing the two of them in my first ever turkey shoot. :)

Diary of a Pet Turkey‘ is written from Marker’s perspective which makes it a delightful read for young kids. It’s also filled with all kinds of interesting facts about turkeys that you might not know. At least I didn’t.

Shopping- Antiques & Collectibles

I know there’s ebay. But nothing beats shopping for antiques and collectibles in shops like this one. It’s packed from floor-to-ceiling with everything you could imagine. And the best part…it’s close to home! :)

This longhouse is a reproduction of structures made by the Iroquois Indians. Exterior is covered in rough cut lumber.

Traditionally longhouse interiors have a wooden pole framework, two doors (front & back) with no windows. This smaller camp version deviated from the original plan by adding windows on both sides. It’s now used for camp counselors. Check out the sleeping loft accessible by a ladder (below).
