The weather was sunny and warm and the skies were blue...
I wore my hat so the wind wouldn't make my bob a massive tangle.
We took the "slow route"
the rural country back road that has hedge rows and farms.
the road is rather narrow
often we'll come upon a horse and rider or a tractor
occasionally we'll meet another vehicle
but most of the time we feel that we are alone
I love the feel of the wind rushing by as we drive
the warm sun on my skin
a competent chauffeur at the wheel
the luxury of being able to soak in all the beauty of the surrounding scenery
Mr. HB stopped so I could capture a few images on my IPhone
I felt it would be fun to share some of these in a post.
a sheep keeping cool in the heat of the sun
a rather stately looking home in farm country
fields and a farm house on the hill
looking down over the valley below
a water tower
looking through a gate of a kiwi farm
It was a very pleasant day to be meandering about soaking in all the sunshine
and taking time together
a date of a different type!
I'd love to see some of the sights where you live.
Please consider a blog post of your country lanes, highways and byways.
To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.
