Fort Fright Night

All 24 of us left for Fort Fright at sunset, dressed in winter clothes. It was very brisk with strong winds blowing out of the Northwest.

We stopped by a bond fire and listed to the French voyageur wearing a skunk skin hat, tell us why he is to frightened to sleep in the fort. Then he pulled his good luck charm out of his shirt..a REAL snake! I was ready to face the ghosts and spirits of the fort, but not SNAKES! I was going in! The werewolves were howling and people were screaming. It was so dark in the fort that I could not see anything or anyone. I lost track of everyone. My daughter, Rebecca, was with me and we proceeded to venture forth into some of the buildings collecting samples of pumpkin bread,cider and listening to the scary tales in front of fireplaces and bond fires. For all of you guests that wanted to hear me scream, you missed it! Rebecca and I were walking back through the wooded area outside the fort walls when I spotted a bright small light out of the corner of my eye. I screamed thinking that it was a goblin coming to get us and threw my arm in front of Rebecca. I scared the person with the cell phone so bad that she jumped. Rebecca was laughing at me and told me that next time I could protect her from a possible Ipod attack!
We finally made it back to the motel and made sure the cider and donuts were ready for everyone when they returned. Stories of the scary night were exchanged and fun was had by all..even if we were frozen!
