Miss Lina read my entry on the Laurelin Archives this morning and asked me to share it also with you here. I hope you'll enjoy it. A Hobbit's Tale - Buckland The day I started my journey to the north (wearing my new amazing dress) I decided to have a trip to Buckland. I always wanted to see Brandy Hall and Crickhollow, but I never found the right occasion before. Too many times I heard hobbits at the Green Dragon saying that those from the Eastmarch are odd people, it was about time to verify these rumours. After a brief break at Stock for my second breakfast, I decided to cross the Brandywine on a boat. I know, why have you always to do things in an unusual way, Neti? Why not taking the path of the Brandywine Bridge? Well, when I arrived upon the shore, I spotted two fisherhobbits that were sitting on a lovely little boat... "Would you like the reach the other side of the river, Miss?" asked me one of them. I told yes and they offered me a ride on their boat. I loved the experience! The scenery was stunning there. Once on the other side, I thanked my escorts and I ventured myself among pretty little holes surrounded by little gardens and friendly animals. I'd love to own a pet, maybe a cute shrew or even a duck! Oh, and have I mentioned the ponies? They have huge stables at Bucklebury, they reminded me those I saw at Bree-town last time I went there. But the best sight has been Brandy Hall for sure. What an incredible hobbit hole! It has the biggest number of windows I ever seen, almost like the Prancing Pony. "So, here is were Master Frodo Baggins spent his childhood...not a bad place to grow up!" I thought. But probably I'll never repeat that at Bannockbury, the other hobbits would start rumours about my weirdness. Brandy Hall is beautiful and so are its gardens. So many beautiful plants and flowers...I'd love to work here for a while, even if it's very close to the forest. The Old Forest, they have a huge hedge to separate the village from those scary trees and a long tunnel that ends in the forest. Honestly I don't know why they built it, the tunnel, I mean we don't have to be linked to a scary forest when we already have what we need in our pretty village! I should ask around about it. After my exploration, the night was approaching so I asked around and I've been welcomed to spend the night in a cozy hole near the hedge. I already miss my burrow at Bannockbury, but this journey is going to be incredible, I already know it.
