The Road to New Isengard

Photo workshop went quite well, I think.  My skills may be rudimentary but they were still comfortably better than anyone present, which I always think is the key factor for skills training.  So I may not have taught them All the Things, but they all learned Things they didn't know, at any rate.

In other news, I walked through the Sarumanish quarry the other day, because I felt that experiencing a strange place full of windowless buildings that make bangs and crashes randomly, as if trolls were imprisoned within, would be good practice for the hounds at Coping with the Scary.

Saruman seems to have revised his 'white hand' logo a bit, but it's still recognisable.  It also looks like the Ents are still keeping a careful eye on him.

Some distance down the road, what looks like a House of Mewlips.

In other, other news, I have discovered that it is now possible to buy licorice and cinnamon herb tea.   Why was I not informed of this previously???
