Once upon a time Aimee had a dream
A valley which had trees draped in silvery moss
and green moss too
a place of beauty in all seasons --
And she dreamed and dreamed of such a place
until one night,
thanks to the wonder of the Internet,
Aimee found there was such a valley and so soon
she set off with family and a friend to explore it.
It was a perfect winter day for traveling.
everything was even better then she had dreamed of--
for besides the beautiful moss-
the wonderful forests-
the incredible view of the coast range-
and many other wonderful things-
there also just happened to be an old covered bridge there.
And Aimee loves covered bridges!
that overlooked the river it was built over.
but knew the sounds of happy children and families eating and playing there
and Aimee woke up.
But her dream wasn't really over,
it was actually just the beginning
and there was a lot more to see.
