A quick visit to Hobbiton Can't Post

This was written by an author-friend of an author-friend about her visit to Hobbiton. A fun read!

http://wordwenches.typepad.com/word_wenches/2017/08/hobbiton.html

(And please allow me to plug the books written by all the authors on the blog.)

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow....

Brilliant! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

Makes me want to hop on a plane and beeline to Hobbiton! I will get there one day :)

I love the Tolkien-style dragon on the Inn wall. Gorgeous!

Thanks for this. LOVE IT!

How nice! [In reply to] Can't Post

I felt like I was right there on the tour with her. I love imagining the Green Dragon bustling with people and good food and drink. But I was surprised at this:
_____________
the tour ...includes a half pint of hobbit beer or cider or non-alcoholic ginger beer...
_____________

Come now! Surely it must come in pints ;)!

Lovely description! [In reply to] Can't Post

Perfectly framed with the photos. Makes one want to pick up the phone and book the fight (and tour)! Thank you for sharing this, Lily!
