PotD: Real Virtual Shire?

I think the Golden Perch is just around the corner...

Life imitating art, imitating life.  Or something.  A glorious spring day in Northern California beckoned, so Mrs. P and I went for a wee hike though the riparian reserve near our house.

I couldn’t help thinking we were trekking through the Shire or somewhere in the Bree fields as the wind sent waves through the tall grass.

The real virtual shire. Don't accept imitations. Or something.
