It was grey outside, It even sleeted a bit, but Oscar and I didn't let that stop us. We had been planning this adventure for a month or so now. We visited a local cider mill and bought some apples, cider, and a few doughnuts. The best part was the journey there and back. We took the least-traveled roads we could find, and thought about where we might build a universal designed home later on.
I grew up way out in the country and miss it terribly. It sometimes feels like I never take a deep breath until I get out where I can see fields and trees. Today was wonderful. Oscar, bless him, stopped whenever we found a place I might want to snap a photo, and we drove and talked and just enjoyed each other for hours. :-}
Photos, in no particular order:
Me with a goofy hat at the cider mill, modeling a beautifully useful bag designed especially for me by my friend Ysabeau the Artist (see her blog to the right)

A lovely little creek wending through a field. You can see some work horses in teh way way background.
The official greeter at the cider mill, he was a little shy, and hid behind a rock when I opened the car door.
