Some friends and I went to the Newburyport, MA, Music Festival on the 12th.
While walking to Newburyport Center, we came across a papier mache bird that had been thrown out and abandoned on the street. Carl took an immediate liking to the bird. We named him Ruffles and he became our mascot for the day! We snapped quite a few pictures with people in our group plus random strangers with Ruffles.
