|exploring in Patma's backyard|
Patma lives very close to town, so we had a very leisurely few days (ahem, yes very unusual compared to our umm, leisurely days in Bellingen?!). We went to some op shops, garage sales and the Crystal Castle. Poe had been dreaming and saving his coins for the day when he got to visit the Crystal Castle (somehow whenever I write that, I can hear an echo; Castle, Castle). Poe loved the "Castle", (unfortunately it doesn't actually look like a castle) he was enthralled by the massive crystals jutting out about the place, the bamboo forest, and the various fairy inspired bits and pieces that were scattered about the place. Ilo and Poe were delighted with their little packs of tiny fairy crystals that they bought and have already spent many many hours gazing and sifting through them all.
