Adventure the Sixth and possibly the best of all of the year…

Yes, it’s early days in 2010, I know that.  But this will likely overshadow many an adventure with its utter fantasticness!!!  On Monday the 15th my friend Kim and I went to the Museum of Science, passed through the barrier and landed at Hogwarts.  The train was there, but it took no time time get to the school and get sorted.

From then on it was a self-directed tour of actual props and costumes used in the movies, and it was wonderful…I just can’t get over it.  All I could do was drink it in.  Hermione’s Yule Ball gown was there, and I would have loved to have tried it on.  Ron’s and Harry’s beds with the curtains, wands, portraits, the Marauder’s Map – it was all there.  I threw a Quaffle through a hoop, pulled up a Mandrake, and sat in Hagrid’s huge chair.  Buckbeak, two centaurs, Dobby, Kreacher, and a Dementor were present as well.

I don’t know what else to say.  It was brilliant. 🙂
