Yesterday I decided we would all take a trip out to Watercress Tower. It is a very wet place and one needs to wear bathing suits. Right up the side of the tower is a gigantic salmon ladder. I don't know whether you have seen a salmon ladder in a stream, but they are like steps with water running over them
We waded up the steps, which looked lovely with the foaming water pouring down them, and with lilies and ferns growing in the cracks of the stones. The tower is so huge it seems like a mountain and has a gigantic lake at the top. Most of it is overgrown with watercress from which the tower takes its name. It felt very nice there with the cranes and herons flying around and the enormous lemon coloured fish swimming lazily by. We met up with the Maestro and the Little Lion for a picnic.
It would have been a perfect day if it were not for the fact that a monster suddenly appeared from beneath the watercress. It let out a deafening roar and we had no choice but to take refuge in the Maestro's hut.
As I write this we are urgently attempting to contact Cowgill to form a rescue party.
