But settle here they have. The area is almost entirely residential, a tranquil refuge. Below, Ziskey Grove and, beyond it, mostly covered by trees, is the Vicerene's retreat (the mountain in the background is Lionsgate, and is connected to the rustic house in Tanglewood).
In central Tanglewood lies Moody Pond, where a tiny sailboat waits to be launched.
Near the eastern border is a new addition, the Tanglewood Infirmary. Given the way Caledonians are always getting into scrapes, one can never have too many places to get patched up!
This peaceful spot, complete with cow, is Belgar Grove, a spot that begs one to stop and look for a while. A short distance away is the Caledon Library special collections building. While looking for a good angle for a photograph of the building, I met a former neighbor from the Downs, Miss Sophie Zuta, who now has a cottage in Tanglewood, Fae Hollow (look for the giant mushrooms). Miss Zuta and I had a lovely chat beneath the towering trees.
The entire western side of the area is taken up by Tinyville, with a variety of buildings for the wee folk, including the Tinyville branch of the library. At the far end of Tinyville lies Toad Hall (home of Mr. Toad, from Wind in the Willows fame) and, beyond that, the Wild Wood, which will also be known to readers of Kenneth Grahame book.
After this visit, I dislike the idea of heading back to civilization, but duty calls.
