Just realised I quoted the wrong comment before oops lol.
I didn't go to work today since it was still darkish when I start and without going for a drive I couldn't tell if the roads were passable. My boss might be unhappy with me not going but I wasn't conmfortable driving on the roads, so meh.
Our paddock hasn't had the water go down a whole lot but the water doesn't appear to be really going across the road like it was last night from what I can see. The rain hasn't really stopped though so the I don't know what the water will do later.
We did get out today - it was overcast but warm with a good breeze blowing. My hubby, cousin and her hubby and one of our other riding buddies went. Lots of wildlife - saw some gorgeous pink spoonbills flying over the bog...they are so PINK!! Some other kind of little ducks, hogs pretty far off down a right of way, a bazillion nasty buzzards and a pelican that was a little far from the coast! We are about 30 miles from the coast so I don't know if this old boy was lost or what. We were in the back of the bayou and there were 3 little boys on the little bridge. We came around the corner and there were 2 boats and about 4 men dressed in camo complete with a camp fire. The guys with us thought they were out there hog hunting. LOL As long as they didn't shoot us.
We rode 7.7 miles today and we did a little jogging and trotting. It felt nice and I was able to keep my balance. I have 29.3 miles for this month. Supposed to start raining next weekend so it may be the last ride for a few weeks.
Any man who can stand 7 miles in a saddle has to be worth his weight in gold. There aren't many men who ride around me so it's utterly fascinating to me that there are men out there than ride and actually know what they're doing enough to last more then ten minutes in a saddle
