D: Well, I can say that my photographs from my trip a few weekends ago were utterly disappointing. H's camera on her phone has NO depth of field. Really, I was expecting more.

One important shot I did get was this though, BREAKFAST! Every morning I woke up at 6 a.m. and got H. up too and we went down for a very full morning meal!

H: *grumble* 6 a.m. while I'm on vacation... *grumble*

D: Oh, quiet you, you loved it.

Just a quick note...

I am back from Acen... although it wasn't a very photo-productive trip for me, because H's phone camera is too slow for that.

On a quick sidenote... she gave me these to eat... THESE!

Does she think just because I'm a stuffed bear, I don't know these are made of plastic?

Important things to know before a long trip...

1. Where the snacks are:

2. That you have enough snacks to make it there, and back again!

3. NEVER allow for distractions. The world is full of mysteries and dangers untold. If you follow that sticky-bun trail blindly, you might just end up dessert!

Here there be dragons...

Now, disappointingly, this particular adventure wasn't filled with food... it was filled with MONSTERS!
I snuck the phone off to our local pet shop... thinking I'd be seeing cute, fluffy kittens, maybe a puppy or two (although they scare me, they always want to chew on me...)... but no, NO. Instead, I look into the swirling, inky abyss and see... THESE!

Huge, scaly monsters, churning the water, pushing at each other to get closer to me, their gaping maws opening and closing in my direction! I tell you... the only snack on this trip... WAS ME!

I'm never going back.

The weekend brought rewards... snack rewards.

D: Hello All, I'm pleased to report that I return to you a changed bear....
I now know FOR SURE that H has been holding out on me in the snack department!
H: Oooh boy, here it comes...

D: After my daring dash with H's phone, I headed out into the wild world to taste its overflowing bounty of snackiness!
H: You know... I caught you about five seconds after you grabbed my phone and ran...

D: First up was breakfast... it was at a quaint little wood-cabinish diner out in the middle of nowhere! While we were there it began to snow heavily... so I ordered myself several nice, big, warm slabs of bacon, drenched them in syrup, and dug in. It was DIVINE!
H: No...I ordered myself some bacon and you snatched it and took off like a greedy little bugger!
D: You're just jealous that I ate all the bacon...

D: Next up was the All-You-Can-Eat-Crab-Leg-Buffet, it was a long, difficult word, but if you were capable of saying it to the waitstaff, you were richly rewarded! Between crab legs and cake... I have to say, there is now a sign outside of the Buffet that says, "No BEARS Allowed"
H: The only reason the sign says "No Bears Allowed" is because you grabbed a pen and wrote it there... we were almost banned permanently for that!
D: Well, they should have known better than to let a Bear into a Buffet.

D: Next was a little place called The Cherry Republic. Evidently it's a WHOLE NATION of snacks!! And they just GIVE THEM AWAY!!!! I heard the term "samples" and "moderation" thrown around... but I'm sure they weren't talking to me. I have to say, The Cherry Republic is a VERY generous vacationing spot, and I highly recommend it!

H: I think the women working there would have kicked you out, had they not been so entranced by one little bear methodically eating every sample they had laid, with such relish.
D: *ignoring H* That was it for this weekends Grand Snack Tour... I plan on having more adventures tonight when I discover something called... COFFEE.

Taking matters into my own paws...

(All photographs from this installment were taken with my cell phone... before it ran out of the room)

D: That's it, H, I need your phone. Give it to me, uh, please.

H: Er...

D: I need to go on the great snack hunt!

H: Uhm, I don't think so... my phone is expensive and you're too tiny...

D: TOO TINY?! I'LL SHOW YOU TOO TINY!!!! *grabs phone and runs*
