Sunday in a Fairy Tale

Do you like fairy tales? Want to join me in visiting one? Then come on. See the castle in the distance?
To reach it, we have to take the ferry.
Let's check the lock. Do we need a key?
Oh, the door was open and we could just enter the courtyard.
 The black knight is keeping watch, ever ready to raise the alarm should enemies appear through the woods.
Laughing boars are assisting him, ready to spit hot oil at any attackers.
 This tower would offer us a good view over the surrounding country side,
but we better check the time and the weather. I think it is time to leave.
 Let's take this bridge which has suddenly appeared. Where did the ferry go?
 Walking on through the woods we reach the arena.
I'm still hearing echos of swordfights and thundering horses hoofs.
walking on, we see a temple in the distance, shimmering, vanishing before our eyes...
I'm afraid, we have to return to reality, so take a deep breath, tuck the memory of a magical walk through the fairy tale safely away to enjoy during the coming cold and dark winter days.

  1. Have you seen the swans, carrying the elfes across the water? And the enchanted trees - green and orange? And the sketching gnoms?
