Road Trip!

So at last, a road trip. The lad is going to a camp in the hills, it’s a winter camp and he was very excited. We dropped him off yesterday and will pick him up tomorrow. It’s about by Middleburg and so we decided to take some pictures. We drove around, went to a great winery–Barrel Oak Winery–and took a lot of pictures of lots of things. This is horse country and Diane loves horses so you know what we stopped to look at a lot. By the way, the wine was good at the Barrel Oak and the hospitality was superb! The best! So if you are out tasting wines in Northern Virgina, this is a must stop. They don’t have horses but almost everyone else with acreage does. And stone fences, my goodness. Since I was on a road trip, I left my 50mm at home and used something bigger. But I’ll get back to the 50 this week.

Horses! In the pasture. Note the ones with jackets!

How sweet of those folks to put jackets on their horsies!! Diane always did have a thing for horses. It runs in the female side of the family! They say to get a horse to know you quickly, exhale gently into its nostrils. Then the horse knows everything it needs to know about you! Learned that from an ol’ trainer at the Fairgrounds behind the house in Xenia. Glad you had a great road trip and, as always, I love the photos!
