On July 1st, I was looking for bugs everywhere. I found a few, but had expected something more.
Today, it was a lot more like I had expected! It seemed like there were beetles everywhere!
When I checked the gate this evening, I saw that Castletown was open! I rushed through while I had the chance. That town is so cool! I like how everything is so different from a normal town. I feel like I’m in bizarro world when I visit there! Zelda had some friends over already and we were all exploring the ‘wonders’ of Castletown. We decided to stop by the Roost for some refreshment. Then Zelda heard about where ‘Pigeon Milk’ comes from and had a few angry words for Brewster! lol
It’s fun to watch hackers run around their towns, even in places where you normally can’t reach!
I couldn’t stay in Castletown too long. Sadly I had to let an Atlas beetle fly away since my pockets were full, so I decided that was my cue to head back to Shaolin. Besides, I was expecting visitors at home! My new friend Miao wanted to come by and copy some of my Japanese furniture, and Vella was going to visit as well.
Once Vella arrived, we started finding beetles everywhere! It was around 11pm, so it was prime time to catch big bugs. We found Elephant beetles, Atlas beetles, Hercules beetles, Scarab beetles… you get the picture. It was awesome! I couldn’t wait to donate them all to the Museum. What was Blathers going to do when I brought him piles of large stinky beetles?
I wasn’t too surprised by his reaction.
Despite the gross-ness of the new donations, I had to go check out the Insect Exhibit and see everything in it’s new place. My favorite to look at was the Hercules beetle battling the Golden Stag beetle on a tree stump!
Afterwards, I wanted to stop by Hang, which is Miao’s town. I hadn’t visited there before! I was excited to see it. Vella and I took a grand tour of the different houses in her town. My favorite room was the Rainbow Garden. It was very cute! I thought it looked a lot better than the garden my character Deb had attempted to make. Check it out:
Miao had told me that she’d already caught 4 hammerhead sharks in Hang. I decided to give it a shot. After searching high and low, up and down the beach, I saw nothing but sea bass and smaller fish. No fins at all! I did manage to catch an Atlas beetle for the Museum, which was good. While I didn’t find what I was looking for, I still felt like I had accomplished a lot! There are so many bugs and fish to catch in July, I can’t expect to get them all in one day, right? I went home and proudly donated the rest of my bounty to Blathers. Then I walked home, just to check my own beaches for sharks before bed.
Near my house, I saw a Goliath beetle on a palm tree. I netted it like a pro and crept along the beach, in case another bug was waiting for me. And there was.
As you can imagine, I was feeling a little woozy after that. Time to call it a night! lol
