# Bill and Dan's Journey

What is this story about?

(Apologies if at the end I improperly announce the answer.)

Bill and Dan bravely ventured forth, eagerly hiking towards a notorious outcrop. Traipsing through the water under a regal old acai, they espied a giant, squirming worm at the bottom of the tree. Pressing further on, they later saw a pink glow, as a solitary flamingo settled upon the water through which they carried their load. Finally they glimpsed a magnificent, soaring albatross.

Not part of the puzzle:

This is my first puzzling.se question; accordingly I have done my best with a fairly simple one, but please let me know if I am in error e.g. with the tags. Will add hints if it proves too tricky!

• Well done! I had only intended "Adventure" (and hadn't bothered to count any primes past 23!), but it seems there's accidentally a semi coherent extension to my designed answer! Hope you enjoyed my first puzzle :) Aug 20, 2019 at 9:10
• @S.Dunnim Yes, it is a good one. I like how you hid the hint. Aug 20, 2019 at 9:22
