Trouble - Alice

Out for a walk...

Ivey and I decided to go for a walk yesterday... it was supposed to be about a 20 minute walk... we went up north of where we live a little ways and decided to keep going a little longer. We had a good hour before it started getting dark. We left around 7pm.

So then we heard this deafening noise, it was the frogs near the pond & stream behind Rhemeyers Hollow. I really wanted to see it, plus Ivey was certain that the road would have to put us back up on the main road... the opposite direction of where we came from, but we would know how to get home. So we got there and it was awesome! Tiny little frogs hopping all over the road... one landed on my shoe. I let him sit there until Ivey said we had to move along. It was very nice, I'll have to go by there again with my camera... but I didn't even carry my cell phone along for this trip.

We pass the little Antique shop which has a sign off the main road. We must be close! We get to the end and there is a stop sign with two options... left or right. Well, there is no road sign... so we chance it and go right... next thing you know there's another cross in the road... we go left onto "White Oak" road... we didn't know where this was! Needless to say... we are completely lost!

Finally we get to the end of that road and go right - towards the only civilization we've seen... moving cars... well, that was the wrong way too! We wound up about 2-3 miles away from home in the opposite direction. Ivey's battery on his phone was low... but he still managed to call his mother to come pick us up... HA! What a pair we are... So at 8:30pm Ivey's mom picked us up. We were exhausted.

All I had to say was thank goodness it wasn't the day before or else she might have thought we were pranking her and hung up...

Also, I am grateful for Tiger Balm. My tendinitis was really killing me when we got home!
