Tears in our eyes when we received the message from the Hares last week, that this would be our last run at the Morley Movers Area, since the Excavators already standing in position for going ahead to flatten down the lovely small hills, valleys and waterfalls, the water streams and the fantastic forest.
A NEW EXTREMELY LARGE HOUSING PROJECT IS TO BE BUILD
However, our disappointment was enormous when we arrived on site and got the information that they already started with the excavation and we were not any longer allowed to enter the jungle and their construction site.
The poor Hares had no other choice, but to find an alternative to it. The only solution was to walk on the road trough the houses of the Kampong. The walk through how the village without the badly missing trees was indeed slightly exhausting under the sunny and still hot Air.
Ryvita had the front horn, but for what? There were no checks placed. We only had to follow the paper on the road.
On this run we at least had the enjoyment to learn how the villagers are living and enjoying their leisure-time. On one place view boys were playing a sort of Beach-ball and they had certainly much fan with it. Other people were cutting lawn or watering their plants or just relaxing in the shadow under the drive-in.
After a little while I joined together with Patricia since Peahen unfortunately still were busy at work. We were astonished that few land lords have nicely extended their houses and several are really beautifully done.
It was a fantastic exercise for all the ladies who like to run very fast, we recognized it when we just reached the last third of the run, and these Ladies were passing us at their second time. For me personally, I enjoyed the run, no hills I had to climb, no valleys and water streams to be passed, nothing but easy going terrain.
However, the welcome from the Hares for us with a green mixed drink was a big surprise and a fantastic idea. Thanks Ladies. Besides that, lovely small prizes have been given away, one for the best Irish dance, which Eastern Promise was winning and another for fastest answering of question has been given away.
After some nice jokes were narrated we got invited to a delicious Irish stew which everyone enjoyed.
I do not like to forget to mention the originality of the Hares how they were dressed, I can’t wait to see the Fotos of Velma at the Internet.
Many thanks for the exciting evening.
