Another adventurous drive

It's healthy to get out in the country. Dec. 3rd, hubby said let's go photograph the Darou-McPherson building in Perth. After that, we drove. This is a backroad, with a wonderful river.



This guy had a hard time. I think they were his dogs, and they got in the car. Hubby kept back until things were good.



We went to Newboro, to browse. Kilborns is a huge store, several buildings, renovated to connect together.
Then, for a late lunch at The Stagecoach Inn. It's lovely. They close at 3:00 p.m., though. We were the last patrons. It was quiet. They are open for dinners on the weekend.


Hubby spotted a hawk. The hawk spotted the car. Off it went. You get the idea!

 Then, just about home, we found two herds of deer feeding on the grass. They could be 'our' deer, as we weren't far from home. The seemed to know that hunting season is over. Hubby turned the car around, and I got a better shot.


This is a drive-by shooting. They didn't pay us much attention! I've often seen deer here.

The cattle in the paddock, looks like a huge barn where they might winter over, and the white things, are they dog kennels? Lovely drive for you both.

Jenn -- I've had a lovely browse through posts I've missed (we've been away) -- certainly enjoyed your 'girl trip' to the DR, with what perfect traveling companions! But am glad to see you made it home and are have adventures with your hubby as well!!

That store is quite impressive for such a place. I have little desire to return though. Perhaps if we have the right kind of visitors one day. Or would that be the wrong kind? :)
