This morning I woke up at 8 o'clock and I could see blue skies and no wind. But my phone said it was 30 degrees!😱 As I was looking out my window without my glasses I could see a red spec on the tree limb. Thought is was flowering but then it moved to another branch and I knew it was a bird. Quickly got up and grabbed my camera but by the time I got back it was gone. I'll be ready next time😀 I think it was a Vermilion Flycatcher.
Got up at 9 o'clock and it didn't feel especially cold inside but turned on the heat anyway. Dolly said it was 61 there and I looked and it was 41 here. What happened!
While taking my walk with Yuma, it felt very nice and refreshing outside with my sweatshirt and jeans. When I looked back towards the White Lion I saw the three horses I took pictures of yesterday, but now they had riders.
Around noon, two more riders came along with a dog. Yuma didn't care about the horses but he wanted to meet their lead dog and I couldn't stop him.As I ran over to make sure Yuma behaved, I noticed they were putting ribbons on bushes. I knew what that meant, but asked anyway. Yep, there is going to be a huge horse distance riding contest this weekend! I've been here twice before when they put on their show and so happy I picked this time to be here ag.
During the afternoon, I noticed more and more horse trailers showing up over in the horse staging area.
