While I was in Minnapolois, Becky Hunt, the illustrator, went to a great deal of work to create an avatar that Keensight could occupy so that he could travel with me around the country without concerns of getting shot or mobbed. She gave it to me when I arrived.

It took some work, but Keensight successfully made the transfer. He was amazed by simple things at first. Being so large before, and now much smaller, the world was far different. Here he is with a glass of water.
After our time together going over book edits, future plans and how to incorporate a publicist onto the team, I headed for home. I had traveled by car this time, so I took some time with my granddaughter and we went sightseeing. Keensight was not a bit bored and even spent time playing with Angela, my granddaughter and her little ponies. He was most disturbed to find out they were not edible.
Below are pictures of our wonderful time in Minneapolis and then South Dakota!

I got in the car and he had a crown? He just smiled when we asked where he got it.
"These look much smaller as a dragon."
Keensight was sad to see the bears contained, though they looked happy to me. There were bears everywhere as we drove through a Jurassic Park type paddock.

Stopped and let the dragon rest in his element.
Overall, it was a great trip home, but I am ready to get back to writing!!
