Today was obelisk day in the shop. The mostly toppled, Egyptian relic will be placed in the explorer's garden (North Star suite) of the Hazelnut Inn. It will serve double duty as an ancient artifact and a bench. Photographs of real obelisks served as a guiding reference as we carved. But guests who are really observant will find the story of Hazelnut Inn hidden in a few of the symbols - just for fun! :) As we carved the symbols this afternoon I read and translated each symbol for the crew... I suspect that they didn't believe my 'true' version of events... but we laughed a lot!
