The Mysterious Flying Lake

The Lake in the Sky

Alice had heared some rumours from some of the guys that there was a mysterious flying lake up just outside the gate of where the horses live. Now Alice was wondering if it was one of the fabled hanging gardens of Babylon and kept on and on at me until I agreed to go on an exploration of the site with her.

So we packed up all the supplies we could possibly need and then discovered that being only a few cm high can have its disadvantages – ie we couldnt get the 60 litre rucksacks onto our backs so we had to reassess what we were going to take with us! (Alice would like to point out that this is one of the reasons that she dreads me doing the packing and would just like you all to know that I packed an inflatable dinosuar… well, it might have been useful.)

In the end we set off with just the tent (we had to sneak this back out of the humans cupboard they think its a flannel or something I think they wash themselves with it – strange creatures) our wool and paper clips incase we needed to do any proper climbing, some sizable cake crumbs and some strawberry cordial.

We set off – unfortunatly we had to wade our way along the gravel river which is vile and dusty and at one point to our horror one of those large smelly things that make the ground rumble grumbled passed us barely missing Alice, and sending dust and pebbles everywhere. I was choking so much I barely felt the pebble that knocked me off my feet and chipped my left arm! Still we dusted ourselves off and carried on.

We had to dodge around large bevelled cylinders of earth that the humans have scattered all over the place in this part of the Garden. The seem to be sort of elevated fields or something, they grow one or two plants in each pot, or at least that’s what we think is going on – you never can tell with humans, to be honest.

Finally we stood at the base of a vast white column that reached up up into the clouds! (Alice would just like it noted for factual accuracy that it didn’t even reach the cloud line, and was in fact not even two metres high, in fact it was bearly over one – I think Alice has completely missed the point of artistic liscense and what makes for majestic discription!)

We climbed up the column, which was very very tiring, and I was hoping that the lake was nice and cool for a nice long swim but when we got there we found that the water was a disturbing colour and there were about three types of algea living in it. Still the view was fantastic!

We are in fact still arguing over wheather it is one of the hanging gardens of Babylon (Alice says no we are not, I just wont listen to the fact that it is not hanging and so therefore cannot be).

Hope to see you all soon
