I am still laughing about some of the things that were said and done in Del Mar. So... let me set the stage. I *finally* got to meet Liz (Dressage10135) in person - she is super cool, by the way. We decided to meet up at the Del Mar National Horse Show so we could enjoy horses and cameras and the beautiful weather.
Anyways, I'll let the photos (and short stories) do the talking.
Big Giant Rollkur Horses
What, praytell, is more impressive in front of a show venue than matching 30' tall rollkur statues? Neck bowed? Check! Open gaping mouth? Check!
Liz and I got a bit bored waiting for our ride to show up, and we almost got torn new ones for playing with the statues, but oh well!
^ pretending to get bitten, but ending up just looking like I need to go potty really really bad.
^Pooping a Liz!
Allie: Hm. You know what would be funny? Getting a picture with my head in the horse's front leg. Nah, that would be stupid, my head would get stuck.
Liz: I'll do it! I won't get stuck!
Liz: Allie... help.. I'm stuck.
^"I bet they transported dead guys in here"
Are you ready for this?
Buckled in and ready for action.... that is... if the helicopter wasn't welded to the ground...
Our big adventure of the day... asking some Navy men to stand next to us for photos. I was shaking like a leaf walking up to these guys to ask them for a photo, but I got 'er done! Apparently I had reason to be afraid.... erm... I guess they're fairly high ranking.
After that encounter, walking up to a group of 6 of them to ask for Liz was a ... no, I'm lying, it was still terrifying!! Another group of high-up men, who look darn pleased with themselves to be standing beside Liz!
....to be continued.
