Those of you who are long-time readers of the Ao4 Digest may remember hearing about the Giant's Castle - it sits high on the hill across the creek from Ao4 Headquarters. That was our first stop. We did a quick pose by these flowers:
We let Mom snap one close-up:
Then Zim said we had a long, long way to go and that we'd best get moving. He took the lead and I got confused as to where we were at first.
|"Zimmie, wait up! There's some weird pagoda thing here! Where are we?"|
"China, Cam. We're in China!"
Oh, my. China! I had heard it was on one of our walking routes. (Click here for explanation.)
I did my best to catch up with him, then it hit me --
|"Ha roowooroo! Hey, Zimmie! Unless the Trolley moved to China, I think you're pulling my leg!"|
|"... unless this is really The Orient Express ..."|
I decided I'd best keep walking. In fact, I took the lead from then on out. It seemed better that way.
|"Ha roo roo roo! Oh, how I love having a kid sister!"|
|"Walking to China! Like I'm going to fall for that one! ... not more than once, anyway ..."|
I stopped alongside a beautiful meadow. This is where we often see deer, so I had a good look around.
Zimmie caught up and helped me look:
Mom loves this picture - us, the meadow, the sunlight ... very serene!
|"Yeah, yeah. Let's get a move on!"|
He's a Drill Sergeant; he gets paid extra to say stuff like that.
It IS awfully serene on this route, though.
Once we looped down and around the Hospice House, look at who we saw in the parking lot:
