Oh, God is good! This weekend we are celebrating our 11th anniversary - and way back in January, for John's birthday, I gave him certificates to a horseback riding adventure on the beach, and a night's stay in Yachats. You never can figure what you are going to get for weather in Oregon at the end of April, but we were blessed - today is gorgeous, and John and I have never had a horseback ride as thrilling and fun as what we did today.
It turned out, it was just the two of us that showed up for the adventure ride - so they quickly assigned us to a phenomenal guide - sweet and friendly, and "flexible" that allowed us to canter frequently on the sand and gave us an elongated trail ride on the way home. At one point, John and I's horses were racing on the beach - it was bliss for both of us - the faster they went, the easier the gait and rhythm to ride - I can't even explain other than I'm so thankful John enjoys it as much as me. We couldn't stop saying how incredible the experience was..... too awesome.
