As you may very well have read. This week I am journeyed to the Kingdom of Atlantia once again for supplies. The caravan was slow and the weather has been hot. Tonight I sleep in a real bed thanks to a gracious Inn Keep here in the Barony of Stierbach. Tomorrow starts the real trading.

The portrait below is not of any members of the Ambrogini family. It is a posting from late last night... a most unfortunate night.

If you want to know what Kingdom you live within, but have been afraid to ask. You are in luck today my friend. This map will tell you what Kingdom you are in by clicking on the area where you live. Just a wise tip from a wise a- Owl.

This was a little stream we crossed at the end of the valley path. Lost River Park had many beautiful paths and stream. The boat ride into the cave
was a bit of a let down. Very short, but where else can you go boating in a cave? One of the paths was not so inviting. This one with the dead trees looked more out of a tale to frighten small children.

This has been a restful week so far. Since the Inn is slow before the summer rush, I have taken a little holiday. Sunday, I started our holiday heading for the relaxing fresh country air of Loch an Fhraioch Shire in the far northern part of the kingdom (Meridian). It has been so peaceful here. Today we ventured into some large caves to escape the heat of the day and enjoy a refreshing cool breeze.

Oft I must strive with wind and wave, Battle them both when under the seaI feel out the bottom, a foreign land. In lying still I am strong in the strife;If I fail in that they are stronger than I, And wrenching me loose, soon put me to rout.They wish to capture what I must keep. I can master them both if my grip holds out,If the rocks bring succor and lend support, Strength in the struggle. Ask me my name!

My dear friend, Isabella, has written of the excellent time she had at a feast (I have forgotten where she feasted). M'lady took top prize in a poetry contest. Everyone was challenged to make a poem of a list of the most preposterous words. M'lady Isabella has not only a sharp wit but a quick mind and this is the poem she composed.
Enchanted Avocado Dream
In the land of enchantment
Near crustacean shores,
With fevered excitement
The Leonine roars.
With propitious ardor
He readies for the fight,
His body all widen
The tawny of zincite.
His fundament in air,
In the avocado wood
None challenge his stare.
His heart set for battle
But his foes flee to quick,
Serendipity is gone
He cries, "fiddlestick!!"
