So here we are, (a little bit past) week 2 of my “Couples-only” reflection series.
These photos were taken during one of our trips to New Zealand (obviously not our latest excursion circa January 2014, where we traveled with munchkin in tow). I forget exactly where we were (I suspect somewhere on the South Island as we flew to Queensland and then made our way up North). It was perfect weather and so we decided to visit one of the nearby country-sides for relaxing afternoon of ambling upon the rolling hills on horse-back. What could be better? I remember thinking that I wasn’t terribly good on horses (though I suspect that I’m even rustier now – come to think of that, that may have been the last time I was on a horse! Circa December 2011). I also recall that the farm we visited had tons of baby animals, it was birthing season, I suppose… and that our guide seemed terribly bored.
All to say, it portrayed a different time, a simpler time. Perhaps after my Switzerland trip and our upcoming family trip to Sunset Beach on Shelter Island, I can look into booking a horseback riding trip with hubby!
