Well now, that says it all. Did you know that scotch is aged in old bourbon barrels?
Do say hello to my old grand dad, Johnnie Walker.
I did know that and I'm glad to see that something good does finally come out of those barrels.

The closest thing we see to carnivores on our trails, are other people. Lol. It's apparently a Nature Reserve that we ride through. Though I haven't seen any myself, there are small antelope. We often see meerkats and "dassies" (Don't know the English name for them) http://focusingonwildlife.com/news/wp-content...

And I've spotted two snakes in the 5 1/2 years I've been riding there. One I suspect was a Cobra of sorts and the other one was some type of tree snake

We also encounter sheep and cattle as well as other horses along our trails (obviously behind fences), and sometimes fisherman with their dogs, or dogs who got out of their yard to chase the horses

But overall, it's just a peaceful place to ride and have fun :-)

PS - You should see the dogs' faces when this "huge intruder" they've been trying to catch, turns around and runs towards them! The horses love it. But they mostly enjoy having a good canter ("lope") back to the group once the dogs have tucked tail and ran away...

Good morning all.

From the pictures, Ruby, it looks like a beautiful place to ride. The dassie looks to be related to the guinea pig

You know that sounds really great. I mean it,'cause when I rode around the mts. in Idaho, we had to think about coyotes, an occaisional bear, cougars and on a rare event a wolf. Never left without the m29 S&W.
The little critter seems to be a type of marmot, rock chuck kind of thing. Not as cute as a Chinchilla though.

A general query:
Is there such a thing as "Moderate Joy?"

I think not.
Joy is bounteous, generous, and often extreme.

Really good. The first 48 hours were most pleasant, the next ten sucked. I(we) almost beat the cold front. Ended up with 6' following seas trying to make the cut into marsh harbour. Decided to round the east side and go on to Hope Town. Nice little place, but bring plenty of stores. prices as always are high. Little harbour is cool to. And much warmer for these old bones.

Yes there is, it happens when you're really happy, but not quite happy enough to crap.

I got a 'server error' so this may be a double post.

Intersting little critter. For Hunglo, did you know that Guinea pigs were once the favoured food of Peruvian royality?
It's true. Still served in some places there.

But have it your way, Ed
