We had a terrific hail storm last night, and then thunder and lightning for quite a while. This morning the sun was fiery brilliant and much redder than this picture shows. Only smoke can do that. I've heard the fire planes coming and going.
I went for an early ride, around the subdivision east of us and then across the highway to the back roads just to fill out the hour. It was 8.3 miles in 58 minutes today, so although that is very slow it's still faster than I have been doing. I know I'll have to gradually increase that to 10-14 mph average this summer.
A beautiful new colt. As I tried to get closer for a better picture Mama kept moving farther away.
I saw a friend's picture on Facebook after a kayak outing. Since that's something I want to try I asked if she could take me out and show me the ropes. We'll do that after my trip to Vegas next week for my mom's 99th birthday.
