A Horse of Course!

With hay fever in full swing I figured a flat walk would be better than huffing and puffing over the mountain today, so Donna and I took the dogs along Mission Greenway.  I couldn't believe how busy it was for a weekday morning.  There were joggers, walkers, and cyclists of all ages and sizes, and I've never seen so many horses in one day.  I counted seven altogether.   Max watched them fairly intently but wasn't overly curious having visited his breeder's farm many times as a young pup.  We also caught sight of four deer gambolling through a horse pasture that borders the greenway.

We walked about 12 km from the dog park to the Ecco Centre and back.  I can't believe it took us three hours when it was all flat and I felt like we were going at a pretty good clip most of the time.  Guess I've always biked it in the past.


You may be wondering what's going on with this photo.  It's the joy of taking a photography class.  I've been messing around with my camera settings and I'd put the ISO on 1600 when I was doing some indoor shots yesterday.  On a sunny day like today, it should have been on 100.   However I am committed to posting daily, so I hit the enhanced option in iPhoto and that's the best I could do.  Perhaps I should go with the Peewee Herman explanation and say "I meant to do that!"
