Weekend Reflections - Ella Resurfaces...

After I trudged all the way back from Three Acre Bog, I was fit to be tied! I wasn't afraid anymore, I was mad. I went back to the platform to thank Conductor Bob for all his help. 
"Good news!" cried Bob, "I found her!"

"Ella, where have you been?" I demanded. "I've been looking all over for you! You were lost for like 3 hours!"
Ella rolled her eyes and explained to me that she was never lost. 
She knew where she was the whole time!
As Ella and I walked back to the kitchen, she told me of her adventures.

First, Ella boarded the train and headed out to Three Acre Bog. While she was there, she begged Mike to take her for a spin around the bog on the picking machine.

Mike said he was sorry, but he thought it was too dangerous for elephants. He said "Ella, there are rides over there that are superfun! Go check 'em out!" and sent her back to the park.

Ella was psyched to find one of her own kind who was friendly enough to have a picture made.

Ella enjoyed the carousel, but she did spend a lot of the ride looking at her reflection in the mirrors!

I hope Melli forgives me for misplacing Ella! Surely Ella's independent spirit is no reflection on me!

Take a ride over to see James at Newtown Area's worth it!


  1. That Ella. I am glad she is safe and sound. Have you gotten a leash for her yet? And maybe it would be best, when you have that house party, if she just has Half-n-Half and skips the caffeine!

  2. Boy has that little tart got you fooled. These photos have got to be a hoax I tell ya. You need to cross examine her more about Bob and Mike...pffft. Great photos by the way :)

  3. I'm sure Melli was fine with Mike saying "Ella, there are rides over there that are superfun! Go check 'em out!" LOL

    Tilden, are you surprised Ella was psyched to find one of her own kind :)

  4. I love your description of Ella's adventures - it looks like she had a good time! The reflections in the train are gorgeous - but I think I like the blue skies reflected in the watery paths of the red (are they cranberries?) berries. What a gorgeous shot. What a fun day!

  5. HALLELUJAH! Oh that little scamp! She is trouble... with a capital T, and that rhymes with E and that stands for ELLA! Well, I'm glad she's safe... I'm glad she had FUN... I hope you have a LEASH now... and a HARNESS! And I HOPE you told her DO NOT ROLL YOUR EYES AT ME! It's all Thom's fault... he let her run WILD!

  6. Very funny : what an original way to present your visit pictures... I enjoyed this elephant adventure, and the pictures are great too !
