Faerie Dust Travel Log: Leg 1 – Out West June 23, 2011

Filed under: Faerie Dust & Whimsy — Faerie Magic @ 5:31 pm

Hello there fellow friends of the magical Sonoran Desert Faerie Dust Clan, we, the muppet gang and the beautiful Mimzy are on the road and on our first driving leg out to Montana where we will all be volunteering at the Garden of 1000 Buddhas.  Although going west from Tucson is NOT the quickest route, they all wanted to see the family before driving out.  Belle suggested that we merrily take our time on the road and all the others concurred.  I, apparently, was overruled … being a democracy and all!

Our first stop along the drive was in the middle of the desert which was a scorching 110 degrees … it is a good thing that we all had sun protection on … the faerie dust clan being from the Sonoran Desert were right at home bathing their wings in the sunlight which sparkled.  Kermie and Piggy wanted to pose in front of the San Diego sign … they were pleased it would be a bit cooler weather!

  We reached Gila Bend and Twig saw the sign that said “Dairy Queen” …. all the critters started singing, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream” … so we took a side trip and meandered down the trail road and found a nice cool cone … which I must say is challenging to eat quick enough when it is so darn toasty outside.   Everyone ended up with ice cream on their faces.   While licking the ice cream, Scout had wandered out and came flying back, “Guys, Guys, guess what I found?”  … “What? ” we all said at the same time ….

A DINOSAUR!   Tumbling through the dusty town of Gila Bend, we stumbled upon an ancient dinosaur whose kin must have wandered here to and fro much much longer ago…

THEN …… (bu bu bah!) we saw it … all of us were startled … a giant rattlesnake of immense proportions appeared … Kermie, Piggy and Mimzy almost met with a timely end and just at the beginning of our road trip … eegads!

 …… This is the beginning of our road trip up North … well, I’m not sure where we will end up next … but we would love for you to tag along with us as the trip continues … we will do our best to keep you posted along the way ….
