Sheba the Elephant at the Belle Isle beach

Dear readers:

I am crushed under a couple of major deadlines this week! But here’s this.

You’re welcome.

Your friend,

The Night Train

P.S. We’ll be back with something fun on Friday. Really fun. Maybe not as fun as an elephant at the beach though.

    I’m so curious about this! Old timey days were so weird and awesome!

    I remember the first elephant brought to the island about 63 years ago. It was a front page pic of a little girl … was supposed to be me but I got scared once in the enclosure.
