The Four Seasons Find A New Home (part 1)


The Four Seasons sailed for many days after the First Land disappeared. The rain finally stopped, but the entire world was covered with water as far as the eye could see. There was nowhere to land so they continued on. For weeks and weeks they were all alone with only the water and waves and sky to keep them company. Their thoughts returned again and again to their First Land home. The memory of the Magic Tree was still in their hearts, so they sang its song as they sailed along to keep them from feeling too lonely.

It's hard to say how long they sailed, but at last they arrived where we live today. There wasn't a town like there is here now, and there weren't any people yet either. Even the land didn't look the same as it does these days, most of it was underwater because of the rain. And when the Four Seasons arrived in their ship, they sailed right down through the very same place where the downtown is found today.

They went a bit further, though not very far, so if you'd like to go looking around for the
place where the Four Seasons' ship came aground, just keep an eye out for the very large rock they tied their ship onto that day.
When the ship was docked and its sails were furled the Four Seasons finally came ashore to look the place over carefully and see if they'd like to stay. It looked pretty good so they decided they would.
