Sunday Drive

The days are getting longer and I'm starting to feel more energetic and less like hibernating. It's so nice to finally wake up to the sun after such a long, dark winter. 

I can't wait to start my mornings by drinking my coffee outside in the sun. 

Sunday afternoons are perfect for little drives in the country. I grabbed my camera and my boyfriend Forrest chauffeured me around for a couple of hours. He does the driving and I do the directing. It works out well! :)

I spotted a farm with this pretty horse in the yard. We pulled over  and I start getting my camera ready. While I'm doing that, Forrest has already jumped out of the car and is making his way through the ditch towards the fenced in yard. He grabs a handful of grass and the horse happily munches on it. 

While he's busy giving the horse belly scratches and handfuls of grass, I'm snapping as many pictures as I can of this pretty horse.  
Next time I'll have to be sure to bring along a bag of apples and carrots.

Birds gathered on an old antennae.

We pass this clump of trees on the way out to Last Mountain Lake every summer. They each seem to have their own personality. I feel that they're quite a comical bunch. 

 This is one of my favorite red barns. I have pictures of it from last summer when things were much greener :)

On our way back home, I spotted a snowy owl sitting on a fence post. He stared at me momentarily before flying away. Since childhood, owls have always reminded me of the movie Labyrinth and my mild obsession with David Bowie ;) 

I can't wait for our next Sunday drive :)
