Creature Vacations: Adventures Continued
Pink Princess and Flamingo are in Hilton Head, South Carolina. "We're staying at a beautiful hotel inside a real lighthouse. Every night, we go up and turn on the light, which flashes different colors. Our favorite color is pink. Ships that see our light toot their horns as a reply. We love it here! The only way to get to the top of the lighthouse is through a bookcase with a hidden door behind it. We have tea parties while we're up there, and no one knows about it, except us. But it's our little secret, so don't tell anyone!"
Peanut got off the cruise ship in Ireland with Snowpea. They are going to the Cliffs of Moher. "We are taking a train ride to the cliffs today. The views are picturesque, and Ireland is just as green as we imagined! I hope we see lots of famous Irish people. I would love to meet at least one. We're also keeping a lookout for leprechauns!" Irish fun fact: according to some historians, more than 40% of American presidents have had some Irish ancestry. (ireland-fun-facts.com)
Kaitlyn, Ginkgo, Flower, and Rainberry are still enjoying the cruise. Last night they found a hidden room with a huge inflatable ball pit and playground. "We were in there until midnight! It was fun going down the slides in the ball pit. We are about to anchor in Le Havre, France, where Flower and Rainberry are getting off. Then, it's on to Germany!"
