Day 2 is here!  The answer to yesterday's quote is Frontier Mall, with the thought by Riley.



*GUESS THE QUOTE



*“This is one of my favourite places on the ranch. The lake is marvellous for swimming in; it warms very quickly in the sun.”

I love the Sealark, too. There was such a languor to it, and as always, I fell into the characters––or they fell into me--so quickly.

For number 3: Wales! And wasn't Harlech one of the shires as well, one of the early ones? I seem to remember Philip telling young Riley about the shires' bloodlines and for some reason I want to say that Harlech was one of them.

I'm sure I'm wrong, though.

Thanks so much, JL!

That map is awesome, JL. It's great to be able to visualise where all the characters live in relation to the Ranch, and how big the World really is when you look at it like this.

I never realised how far away Wade lives from the others, he needs to move to the Ranch. Pronto!

Thank you so much for another amazing Advent Day!

A map David would understand, marking all the important people in his world. Thanks for sharing it this Advent, JL.

And I agree, JL.  The map is AWESOME.  I don't remember Peter and Lewis.  I'll have to look them up.

Glad everyone likes the map.  I have Peter and Lewis's information listed in the Family Room on the FCR Family Character Info list, but here is a reminder.


Peter – TOP; Family; mentioned in Watching the Waters and Cathedral Close; same generation as James and Niall
Lewis – BRAT; Family; mentioned in Cathedral Close; same generation as James and Niall

Thank you, @JL.  I've been wanting to read Cathedral Close again.  I'll have to be on the lookout for Peter and Lewis.  Might as well do the same for Watching the Waters while I'm at it.
