Giraffe in a Truck

All week, a metal-worker has been "building" this giraffe near the tourist office. I kept meaning to investigate--and sketch--it. But tonight I came across it in an unexpected place.

It was parked in front of a shop that sells arts and crafts from around the world. When the store is open, big metal emus guard the door. I wonder if the giraffe will soon be joining them.

While I was sketching, three different passers-by stopped to take pictures of it, and a couple of others slowed down to look and comment. It did look funny--as if it had suddenly decided to lie down and take a nap!
