I think you’re going to like my first picture in this email. Here it is:
I’m naming this sculpture “Moss Woman Reclining.” What do you think? You’re going to tell me she’s “Reclining Woman Stuck in Mud,” aren’t you?
We saw her on our walk today in Beacon Hill Park. This park has something to offer everyone. If you don’t like moss covered women emerging out of the ground, that’s okay. Then you can enjoy something else, like this.
Sometimes Papa and I just lie on the ground under these trees and stare up into the beautiful leaves. I like the different patterns that I see. I think he likes the part where he falls asleep.
We like walking over to the harbor too. We talk about which sail boat we like most. Sometimes we watch the little water taxis (little orange boats in this picture).
I didn’t take a picture of it, but sometimes the water taxis will do a performance, sort of a ballet of boats. Big ferry boats come and go. Kayakers paddle by. Sail boats idle out to sea. When I hear the roar of propeller engines, then I know that a seaplane is landing or taking off.
People here like to do things that are fun. For instance, when we walked over to Cattle Point, we heard piano music in the distance.
As we walked the pathway, the music got louder. Then we saw it.
A man playing an outdoor piano. Who puts a big piano outside so that anyone can play it? Canadians, that’s who. Need I say that we’re enjoying our summer here in Victoria?
I’m your friend.

- You may be asking yourself, “Who is Solbit?” Solbit is a fictional character, but she is a real plastic dinosaur, sent to us unsolicited in a package we ordered from Photojojo. So, she’s a plastic jurassic. Solbit is short for the four names given her by our grandchildren: Sparkle, Orangie, Lulu, Breakit. We tend to use her given names for when she’s been naughty. Thank you for visiting Tales of a Plastic Jurassic. Solbit likes company and hopes you’ll come back.
- You can learn more about Solbit at her About page and in the earlier posts, “Solbit: How I Got My Name” and “Solbit: How I Got to Travel.”
