|old photo to show you picnic area is to right|
Now normally we come back this way, the picnic area is to the right, the last time we were here we walked the wrong way round & came to the picnic area first. Today the Ogre took us straight ahead, we had no idea where we were or what it would be like.
|follow the brown dirt road|
We walked past lot of homes, none of them were built of brick, I do hope there are no Wolves in the Queendom or they could Huff & Puff those houses down.

|not too steep|
It was nice and shady for a bit too. The Ogre was slow, so we had to wait for her several times. She did not bring any water for herself, this was silly of her.
|if we get too far ahead of the Ogre we will return|
|a gateway to where?|
Oh yes!! Now I know where we are. Not far from the picnic area, just down from the little lake that had dried up. We had walked a long way & yet ended up not far from where we started. But we were very tired by now, we stopped for a short rest.
|not lost at all|
|back on track, see the blue marker?|
We know exactly where we are now. No need to worry & not trust the Ogre at all.
Now normally when we get to the end of that path the Ogre takes us up to the right but this time she took us through another gate & down another unknown path, this one was also dug up by hoof prints. I think this may be a thoroughfare for those on horseback.
|another new part|
|see where we are|
|just checking the Ogre is keeping up with us|
The KIT is doing well carrying the heavy bags, by now they should be a bit lighter as we have drunk all the water that we brought with us.
The rivers & ponds are all but dried up, there is thick mud at the bottom, it is like quicksand, sucking you down when you attempt to drink.
|atlast, back to the main entrance|
All in all we had a lovely time, we got very pooped out with all the walking but we did get to have another long drink when we got back to the chariot as the Ogre had thought well & brought more water for us.
And just for a bit of fun!!!! Can you find me?
