Turtle in Paradise Chapter 5

Here are some pictures to help us with chapter five.

Up in the top, left corner you can see Matecumbe Key where Mr. Curry (Beans, Kermit, and Buddy's father) is working on the highway. Coming from the island you can see a causeway. That's where dirt has been moved so that a road can be built on top of it. Then the bridge starts.  There are many bridges connecting the keys today, but Mr. Edgit and Turtle had to take a ferry sometimes, remember?

At one point the Diaper Gang had babies lined up "like cigars in a box." This should give you an idea of what that means.

Maybe this is what Jimmy looked like, but is that what the kids in Key West would have looked like?

This is the corner of Francis Street and Curry Lane today, where Turtle pulled the nickel-in-the-bottom-of-the-cup trick to get ice cream.
