Rae's Redlands Walking Tour: The Halloween Special.


it twas said of old, around hearth and fire,

that Redlands was the crown jewel of an Inland Empire...


set alongside palms and an easterly breeze,

sit stately homes perched among eucalyptus trees.


 and in these coifed mansions remain ghosts of the past... 

oh no! so alarming!

but have you no worry, they're really...

quite charming.

just as the moon begins to take flight, 

on the eve that welcomes a Halloween night

once regal damsels, aye, straight from fairy tale books

can be spied walking the grounds as enchanted visitors sneak looks



there's Lilyanna of Kimberly Crest



prepping for parties, often feeling quite stressed.


 

or Lonnduvina of Lundswold Manor



turning away endless suitors, arriving in such a clamor...



Or Ellie-jane-o-nella of Emerald Castle...


cheery and sassy, such a fun damsel!




And last, Emersonina, the most cute little ghost




gathering gumdrops from magic gardens
 prepping a candied roast,  

all before

 giving a toast 

to the guests she loves most

 because, she's such a good host.

{oh. that was gooooood.}


................................................................


At Halloween dusk, go looking, and i'm sure you will find


these damsels walking the grounds, they're really quite kind


{but also, beware, unafraid to speak their mind.}


Yes, the stately ladies of Redlands past, for all to see




wishing everyone a very Happy Halloween.
