Today was the day. The Day. The day that Owyn and Rhys have been waiting for. Today we went to Hobbiton. I was not at all sure what to expect, and was a little worried that they would be disappointed.
|Owyn after the tour. Better than Legoland. High praise indeed.|
An early Sunday start. We were mostly alone on the roads. We were booked for the 0930 tour. It was an easy hour drive to get there.
|Owyn lost his mind when he saw this.|
|The terrain around Hobbiton. You can see the rain cells rolling around out there.|
|The Green Dragon from the road.|
|Holy crap! A hobbit hole! We're in Hobbiton!|
|Looking up towards Bagend. The smaller tree on the left is Bilbo's house.|
|A series of holes moving up the hill. They are in different scales and use forced perspective to appear farther apart.|
|Huh. Looks like I am actually on this trip with the rest of the family.|
|Looking up at Bagend from the Green Dragon.|
|The exterior of the Green Dragon. It is the only building in town that has a finished interior.|
|The bar in the Green Dragon. The tour came with a drink. Cider for Tracy. Ginger beer for the boys. Amber for me.|
