Peaceful Evening

After a day of writing and working, I was craving a peaceful evening.


So we hopped on our beach cruisers, and made our way to the park.


Book and camera in hand,


the sweet scent of nearby horses,


and birds singing in the distance...


It was JUST what I was looking for.

Don't you just love peaceful days. I will pick the scent of horses over, cows, pigs, or chickens, as in chicken farm. Although Jesse, there are two goats in a pen behind us and eweee wee, they smell...not in a good way either. Hope you have another fun day today. xoxo,Susie
