Having survived to see the New Year, we spent much of the rest of our
time lounging about the castle. There were occasional attempts to
rally the troops for adventure, but rarely were we convinced that
anywhere else was better than where we already were. We did a fine job
of amusing ourselves without leaving the grounds:
We flew a kite.
We battled it out at table tennis.
We pointed out passing jets.
We danced on the steps.
We scrutinized the remains of the dock.
We tramped through the bushes.
We read books.
We played games.
We hammed it up at the table.
We stranded Bob in the pool...
...and threw him to the gators...
...and then sat on the steps, reflecting upon our accomplishments.
