Finding our way... and the Horseshoe pit

Once again we woke up in this wonderful environment. Marlene is a great cook and breakfast and dinner have been more then satisfactory.
We went for a walk with the dogs; Jess a pyrenese and Bailie a mixed shetland breed. Jess is 2 years old and full of energy, although she has a bad leg that slows her down a bit. Bailie is a dog from a shelter and has at last found a good home and as Marlene says she has two speeds slow and stop. We walked round the meadow and down to the creek. The weather is good but not good enough to get our feet wet, I think it might be a tad cold grrr... The creek is crystal clear, we could see some fish and floating insects.
In the afternoon we went quading. Bruce and Marlene have 2 quad bikes on both there is room for a passenger. Being on the quad for the first time was quiet an adrenaline rush. I loved it and Mannie too. We drove out to the cabin, which is about a mile from the house. The cabin has no electricity or running water. All the water needed comes from the creek. Mannie and I will stay here for a couple of nights, in the not too distant future. Can't wait!!
The rest of the afternoon we spent making a horseshoe pit. Bruce flatened the ground as well as could be expected and Dad looked the rules up on the internet and placed the two poles the correct distant from each other. The rest of us placed rocks round the whole run to give the pits bounderies. We then of course had a game the POF's (polite old foggies) against the YR's (young rebels). The young rebels winning, naturally.
We ended the evening with a campfire and a beef filet done on the BBQ, by Bruce. mmm...
