We got out in nature at the San Elijo Lagoon and made some friends in the process. We met a desert tortoise named Franklin who loved to have his shell pet. They also had some cool snakes and other creatures in the nature center to look at.

A giant green beetle also tried to be Aliciana’s friend. First he landed in her hair, and after I picked him out, he flew off, made a circle, and landed on her side. Once I picked him off again, he decided to go bother someone else.
