I just returned from four days at a horse ranch in British Columbia with my wife and her family on our annual Canada vacation. Warm days filled with horseback riding and eating, reading and playing games, lake swimming and stargazing.
We saw coyote and deer. We watched loons, ducks, and bald eagles. My wife and I went on a two-hour trail run where we communed with dragonflies and damselflies, bees (and bee stings), mosquitoes (and mosquito bites). Every year I finish another book or two and reach the pinnacle of relaxation before coming home recharged and ready for a new season!
