This afternoon we drove to Pilley where we collected Elizabeth to take her on a photographic trip to the north of the forest and return to our home for dinner.
As I stepped out of the car to photograph ponies in a stream at Ibsley I noticed a gentleman with the same aim in mind. Back in the car I noticed a couple of very heavy horses.
Elizabeth and I both communed with ponies at North Gorley. Once more I got my own back on Jackie as she photographed
my sister and me.
On the way up the hill to the common we disturbed a stag and his harem.
Elizabeth and I photographed a bucolic smoky scene.
I gained a smile from an equestrienne crossing the stream.
Elizabeth will e-mail me her pictures tomorrow.
The aforementioned dinner consisted of Jackie’s savoury rice topped with a thick omelette; prawns of the tempura and the hot and spicy varieties; and vegetable spring rolls. The Culinary Queen drank Hoegaarden while Elizabeth and I drank Hacienda Don Hernan Rioja 2019.
As I publish this post Jackie is driving Elizabeth home.
