|I feel less bad about killing those spiders now.|
I collected the feathers and the arrows from the dead zombies and skeletons, climbed up the hill, and finally walked through my hole. It was time to move on. Looking ahead, it seemed the terrain would let me pass for once.
|A clear path.|
To the south, some pigs were chilling out in the shade of a tree. This isn't important, but I found observing them enjoyable for a time. I couldn't say why. They just seemed very relaxed and content under their tree.
Leaving the pigs behind and approaching the valleyit turned out to not be the easy path I thought it would be. Just beyond the crest, it sunk sharply into a ditch. Still, it was nothing a spade could not deal with. I even found some coal.
Up the opposite side, the land opened into rolling hills with some towering monuments to the north.
As I walked, I could feel another ocean growing near.
|Another clan of shade-pigs.|
Sure enough, there was the ocean. On the sand, though, was a small cave. I decided to have a quick look and was fortunate enough to find some iron. Along with the mushrooms, the store that the zombie had destroyed was slowly being replenished.
|New lands. Again.|
I did not leave the ocean behind, however. It continued to creep up from the south in small bays and inlets. I found one bay particularly scenic with its rocky outcrop. I could imagine a small harbour town being established on its beaches. Not by me, though.
|You can practically see the ships sailing in.|
|I'm eating tonight!|
|Ain't no zombies sneaking up on me.|
I think I'm getting the hang of this.
