A Zombie and a Present

Last Saturday we went to the fair.
There weren't any fun rides, but we did play a game and won a zombie!

The zombie is missing all kinds of body parts.
You can assemble the zombie to make him complete.

You can even make a game out of it by setting a timer and trying to assemble the zombie before time runs out and he falls apart again, but as it's tricky enough to get him assembled without the platform he's on turning and shaking, I'll practice a bit first before playing the timed game.

Yesterday I got a present.
I wonder what Lakrids means...

There was liquorice inside!
I got a chocolate covered liquorice and a jar full of Habanero Chili Liquorice. Yum!

Thanks, E.!

A Forest and a Monster?

Yesterday it promised to be a lovely day, so we went for a walk.

We wanted to go to a forest.
This might look like a forest, but it had a meadow on one side and a road on the other.

This looks more like it.
A sign that said we were entering a special nature zone with rules we had to follow as not to disturb the wildlife. I wonder what kind of wildlife.

As we entered the forest my owner told me a story about a forest monster.
Was the Forest Monster the wildlife we shouldn't disturb?

It was beautiful in the forest and i spotted mushrooms that looked like potatoes!

I did some climbing.

This small branch was more comfortable than it might look.

Another mushroom.

Then I heard a strange sound.
Like someone was munching on something!

I decided to investigate.
It could be the Forest Monster!

Nope, not here.

Hmm... If it is the monster, it's good at hiding.

Not in this tree.

Not here either.

More mushrooms.
But someone had clearly been munching on these!

And then I spotted the culprit!

It wasn't a monster:
It was Tiny, the luck elephant. He was curious about the mushrooms and decided to taste them. He said that shiitake mushrooms are tastier.

That mystery solved we continued our walk.

I spotted acorns!

Someone had munched on this acorn. It wasn't Tiny though.

We took a break in this lovely field of heather.

The weather was indeed lovely. Nice and sunny.
We had a lot of grey days lately, so we enjoyed the sun.

A really big mushroom.
I think it's a tinder fungus.

A really tiny mushroom.

After a wonderful walk we made our way back to the bus station to go home again.

But before we took a bus back home, we had something to eat.
Fries! Yum!
