My World Tuesday: Children in the Corn

After a fabulous pizza lunch at the First & Last Tavern in Middletown, Dell and her friends had a go at the 14-acre corn maze at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield.





While the correct course through the corn was probably as clear as day for the aliens who took this picture of UConn Women's Coach Geno Auriemma, it was not so clear to our crowd of little navigators.





What started out as good fun soon became a bit disturbing. And not for us alone. It was quite something to pass and pass again people who started when we did and note the deepening frownies, the darkening brows, the hurried pace as panic set in. The corn seemed to taunt us. One of the Lyman's employees on one of the bridges did too; he told us the food drops were every Tuesday, not to worry....




The sky grew dark.



And then the way somehow became clear (we followed the voices), and out we came, back again among the living in the free world. We had a great time.

    Mazes are scary fun, aren't they? You want to get lost, but not too much...

  7. This is one reason why I don't like the idea of going into one of these large mazes. I panic when I feel lost. I have been lost in a tiny little marsh before. I won't forget that feeling. Really creaps me out just thinking about it. I think your kids are brave adventurers.

  14. I've never been in one before but always wanted to try. This is the one reason I haven't. Fear of getting lost!

  27. i enjoy running around farms and barns but never tried among corns.

    great place to relax.

  28. Glad you had a great time, that is what mazes are all about, confusion and feeling disorientated and trapped until you think you can take no more and then the total release as you surface into the world once more. A corn maze must be scarier because of the rustling of the dry leaves.

  29. Surely an interesting and nice experience. Thanks for sharing.

  30. Sounds fun and scary, like a Haunted House.
