16 - To Sebastian - June 2011





Dear Sebastian,  

Today when we were in our boat, we came to a big mountain.

“Oh No!  How will we get round this?” we wondered.

When we got very close to it, we found there was a tunnel.   

So we went very very slowly up to the door and we looked in.

It was very very dark, and very very long.   It was nearly as far to the other end as it is to get to Auntie Abbie’s place.

We could see the mountain at the other end which was so far away that it looked just like a tiny little green door.  There were yellow lights too, and when they reflected in the water it looked as though there were lots of them, but they weren’t very bright, so it looked very dark and scary.

Inside the tunnel was a funny blue tugboat that had a bright light and used a chain to pull it along.     It was very noisy, but it showed us the way to the other end.

It took more than  an hour to get to the other end of the tunnel.  That’s even longer than it takes you to eat your tea.


When we got to the other side we had been in the dark for so long that everything looked really really bright.   We had to blink five times and put our sunglasses on for a little while.


Give yourself a big hug from us, and blow bubbles on Elliott’s tummy!

Love Papa and Jojo
