Make your own Adventure: Collecting Rocks
You don’t need to travel far to find adventure. Between smatterings of rain, Mikey and I donned our adventuring shoes and headed out to explore. We stayed fairly close to the apartment, that way if the rain caught us unawares then we could quickly hightail it home before we got too wet. After all, adventurers have to be ready for anything!
We decided to explore the area behind our apartment, along a trail that used to belong to some train tracks. The old tracks are sadly gone, but there were plenty of things to climb over, nooks to hide in and special rocks to collect and bring home.
Our bags heavy with the previously mentioned special rocks, we felt the first little drops of rain upon our heads. Pulling our hoods up, we looked to the sky to see the naughtiest of little black clouds hovering over us. He followed us all the way home, our shoes squelching through puddles, and stayed over the apartment for the better part of the afternoon.
So what were we to do? Even the bravest of adventurers don’t much like getting their shoes wet. Instead, these adventurers decided to stay inside to examine and work on the special rocks they had brought home.
