I presented my last three posts in themes because I took so many photos and saw so many things that I couldn't figure out a better way to share my eight-day adventure with you. In doing so, I failed to include a few scenes and moments that I will fill you in on now. Enjoy!
|I rode a horse, led by a dog in a small animal circus. I have heard that a video exists of this also, but I have not seen it. The lesson here is that whenever someone gestures for me to get on a horse, I oblige.|
|One of the days we went to a forest for a tour of local plants, trees and flowers. I loved this "shaving brush" tree, which I have been unable to positively identify online. It grows in white (like this tree) and red. Both were spectacular.|
|We took a ride on this sweet old steam train. We sat in an open car full of benches while the soot and ash blew back in our eyes.|
|Okay, back to the animal circus for a second. The best part was the tiny apparatus that the owner built for each and every act. There were tiny see-saws, hoops, little jail cells, dog-sized soccer goals and beds, and about fifteen other inventions.|
|There were so many beautiful churches, with amazing vintage cars parked outside.|
