On a bike ride

I’m getting ready to go on my first bike ride of the summer.  I’m not taking my camera, there’s something else I want to bring.  I hope I’ll see my four-legged friends, I didn’t see them all winter as I only take this road in summer and fall.  It’s a beautiful early evening, so peaceful on this rural back road as I’m going up the hill.  I see them farther in the field.   Every time I get there I stop to talk to them and each time they come to meet me.  I always wonder if they recognize me, especially after the long winter months without seeing me.  I open my backpack, I have something in there they really like, some pieces of apples and carrots.  I don’t give them too many, just a few.  I hang around for a little while, I tell them how beautiful and graceful they are.  It’s time to go now,  it’s getting darker.   I tell them I’ll be back soon and wave at them as I go down the hill.

Two other horses I used to see on another bike ride.  I don’t see them anymore.  I wonder what happened to them.

I hope you are all doing well and are having a wonderful time this summer.  Until now it’s been rather cold here but I know warmer days are coming and I’m looking forward to them.

Happy week dear friends !
