My Mum, Jessica (my lovely niece) and myself are setting off on an adventure on Saturday. We are off to Montana. This has been an ambition of ours for a long time, hence why I have been trying to get out riding on Molly as much as possible.
We are going to Sweet Grass Ranch for a week’s holiday of riding, rounding up cattle and more riding…. We are all really excited, including Mum! OK, so, it’s a long way to go for a week, however, Mum doesn’t want to be away from her bairns (Molly, Morlich and Leacan) for more time than that! Bless.
We had a ‘team meeting’ this morning, making our list of things that we need to take with us. Mum was asking me, “Are you SURE you want to take your camera with you….” Now, let me think about that one! Of course I am going to take my camera: armed with my camera bag that has been bought especially so I can take it with me on horseback.
There won’t be regular updates on Facebook, no emails home, no texts (probably not) and I won’t be watching any TV – not that I watch much TV anyway…. Looking forward to ‘switching off’ for a week. Mind you, there are one or two people that may think I am already ‘switched off’….. There are some people who may be reading this that might just enjoy the peace!
I am taking a journal with me, so I can record what is happening and then I will post here when I get home! I might even take a sketch book (I haven’t sketched for years, and I used to enjoy it very much), so will have a pencil and eraser with me, oh yes, and a Pritt Stick for attaching things into the journal!
Apart from rounding up cattle, riding, taking photographs and generally chilling, I really want to learn how to lasso… that will be fun….. watch out!
