...well about 20km from Caroline.
We are in the middle of nowhere. My aunt, Marlene and her husband Bruce who we are visting, live in a house that looks like (from the outside) the Waltons, delux version. Inside however it is far more superiour, with a gorgeous kitchen and enough sleeping areas and bathrooms for us all. It is surrounded by meadow and pine trees nothing around for 2 miles. It is beautiful. The house was built this year and is as good as finished. Only the ground around the house needs to be worked on.
This mornimg we saw some deer in the meadows, while preparing breakfast. Imagine having that on your doorstep. Being so close to nature it is amazing. Today we have took it easy and spent our time recovering from our long journey.
The evening we lit up a camp fire and chatted while downing a few beers. Donny Crawford joined us he came round to meet us, he is one of the neighbouring ranches. He is quite a character an older guy small and slim, not skinny. Wearing work clothes, a checkered jacket, and an oversized baseball cap he arrived on a quad bike. Today a tool of the trade on the ranches. In a strong canadian accent he introduced himself, he kept Bruce and Marlene up to date with local gossip, chuckling everynow and then.
Donny left and we got round to eating and then we hit the sack.
