Hi everyone, we’re back! Wow, what a whirlwind few days around The Hollow we’ve had, and as a result we’ve got a ton of great new stuff coming down the wire to share with everyone in the coming days. We’ve pretty much driven over 600 miles in the last few days pulling all these photo shoots together and we honestly think you’re in for some pretty great surprises.
In the meantime, we wanted to get a new blog post out for everyone today. Sorry for the brevity of it, but we did think it was a worthwhile image to share. During our main adventure earlier this week, we encountered this absolutely magical scene on our way home. I’m sure you’re wondering how the title of today’s blog post can have any sort of tie-in with the picture we’re going to share, so in an effort to not leave everyone dangling, let’s get to it!…
For those of us afraid of blood-sucking vampires, this is the sort of place you want to see. If you’re being hunted by an experienced vampire, you really want as a minimum a necklace made of cloves of garlic. The only thing better than that would be to make a cloak out of garlic; and for that you need quantity. Enter the garlic stand on the side of the road.
This scene just completely reminded us of a scene from a time now past. We still see these sorts of stands on the road-sides up here on Vancouver Island, but they are few and far between these days. This one in particular was a beautiful scene. There were 5 or more different varieties of naturally grown garlic on this stand, as well as a pretty comprehensive write-up describing each variety. Needless to say that after Mrs. Toad and myself visited this place, we left it one bunch lighter.
We really hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this image today as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you. Please do stay tuned, tomorrow we start to roll out a new bunch of images and accompanying story-lines of some pretty interesting sights and stories. And as always, we welcome you to leave any comments you may have as we truly love to hear from all our visitors.
