Sheila and Deb met us at Branched Oak Lake on their good horses, Jake & Jim. The sky stayed overcast most of the day, but the temperature was pleasant. Sweatshirt weather at its finest! We rode just under 7 miles, unsaddled and let the horses graze as we enjoyed some fattening snacks.
Windy & I watching the turkeys
The following day, I met my Shari at Camp Moses. While we usually enjoy the foliage change at Camp Moses, due to wet weather and trails, we haven’t been there since September. The leaves have long since dropped, making a crispy covering over the trails. But the landscape was still beautiful in its own way. We saw a lot of deer and the biggest flock of wild turkeys I have ever seen.
Temps are expected to drop about 10 to 15 degrees next week. Still doable, but with the end of daylight saving time, it’s now dusk when I get home. Hoping November gives us another few weekends like the one we just had. Perfect restitution for October.
