Here I am at Lake Hylia!
|Hey, fellow travellers! I'm Laguna Loire,
and I'm really happy to welcome you back
to The Travelling Companion. Since my last
column, I've travelled to lovely Lake Hylia!
It was really easy getting to Lake Hylia. It's really not more than a day's walk from Hyrule Castle Town. The gate was locked, but somebody had left a ladder just laying around, so I climbed over the wall. It kinda sent a mixed message about whether I was welcome or not, though, so I was a little worried.
I was kinda surprised that there were no inns or anything near Lake Hylia, but when I dug up a couple of plants, I found a little floating heart that made me feel really refreshed. I also found some of the local currency, Rupees, that way - money really does grow on trees, or at least on plants, around here!
There was a nice fishing hole on the far bank of Lake Hylia. I stopped by there and spent a long time trying to catch some fish, but I didn't do real good. Some people got good catches, but I think maybe the fishing is better in the Wyndia region, actually. Still, it was a lot of fun.
I walked out on this big bridge and found a plaque, but it was in the local language, so I couldn't read it. Then I got hit by a rock and fell in the water! It's a good thing I had brought a harpoon gun along with my machine gun, 'cause otherwise this rock-spitting creature would have gotten me! When I tried to get close to it, it went and hid underwater, which was pretty wimpy of it, don't you think?
I'm not a real good swimmer, so it was a little scary being out in the middle of the lake like that. Fortunately, a passing Zera helped me get back to shore. He didn't even ask for anything in return, although I never did find those Rupees I'd gotten from the plants. I must have dropped them somewhere, I guess?
All in all, I give this place a 10!
