I could travel the world and be satisfied. I suppose we all would, really. I had to give this challenge a bit more thought. I can’t say these are my top five places, however they are definitely places I would like to visit to.
Orcus Island is the largest of the San Juan Islands, which are located in the northwestern corner of Washington state in San Juan County, Washington. I’ve been there once, in 1998. So why would I want to visit again? It’s a beautiful place to see. I certainly did not get enough time there. The real reason is because my head was in the clouds when I visited. So much so, that I didn’t ‘really’ get to see the beauty of the island. At the time, all I cared about was the guy in front of me. I wasn’t even in love with him. (That’s a whole other blog post…if ever it became one.) I have one single, solitary picture of the entire weekend experience and it is of a waterfall. Lovely picture. So I’d like to travel back there, alone this time, to breath in all that the island has to offer me.

The introduction with the dinosaur spitting out the TARDIS was an interesting opening. I also liked that the viewer wasn’t privy to the entire scenes of the regeneration of the Doctor. And hello…when Clara opened the door, pretty hot look I thought. LOL However I liked when the Doctor opened the door. ‘Shush’.

I mean, I can completely understand Clara’s inability to trust the new doctor…I mean, he doesn’t even remember her. “You really let yourself go.” (funny). “You’re very similar heights”. The obvious laughable moments mingled in with the bittersweet frustrations Clara was feeling.
*Intro* I like the whole steampunk clockwork intro. Very nice. The dark sinister eyes was a plus…showing me, letting me agree with my original belief that this doctor would be ‘darker’.
“Why is there only a bed in it?” I don’t understand why the doctor doesn’t understand the concept of the bedroom. It was confusing. To me anyway. I mean, he understands who he is. The size of his brain would be like a piano dropping on her head…but he can’t understand the concept of a bedroom? Odd. Continue reading →
