                                                                  Step 84 - Turtle Mosaic
              Clada came up with this design based on an old ink drawing from the 1800's.  Chip has started cutting the pieces.

              Chip re-drew the compass rose so it was perfect.                     The compass rose is made of black granite.

                            This is work that takes Chip's engineering skills.               We've been saving this travertine for the shell.

                                 We love how this mosaic is coming along.             Chip has put the turtle on hold while he works on walls.

                                                                    More to come...this journey is continuing.
