So, I was thinking about my walk photos... and I was sure I had one from last year with a horse.  
Similar to the one taken on Wednesday night. 
So I hunted it down...

ABOVE: And there it is.  Taken in September last year.  And this is the one taken this year (with a horse)...

ABOVE:  Taken 14 months later.  NOW I can sure see a difference.  In me.  And it's a nicer looking horse too!  lol

Sometimes you need a comparison to boost your motivation.  

Now today, I am heading off to Hamilton, meeting up with Sue #1 and we are going out to Sue #2's for lunch.
It's simply AGES since I spent time with the Sue's!

I can't wait to see them. They are just lovely girls to hang out with.

I'm gunna leave the teenagers to their own devices, I'm sure they can look after themselves.


4.21 pm:   And I'm finally home from my lovely day out!
I took a few photos, which I will need to download and edit, then I can share some on here.
But not right this minute.

I have to take Brylee to work soon, then sort out dinner.  THEN I have a walk at 7 pm.

SOooo... it might be a bit later on before I can do a proper update of my day.

Sorry about that... but I will get to it!  *smiles*


ABOVE:  The Sue's and me.

 ABOVE:  Sue #2 and I, looking over the garden.

ABOVE: Our lovely lunch, chicken and salad.  I even tried some Cranberry drink, which was very nice.

 ABOVE:  Sue's goats.  The one lying down looked dead, or heavily pregnant.  She was neither!  Just sleeping.

 ABOVE: Looking across the garden, what is that goat doing?

 ABOVE:  Crazy goat, she's in a lush field of grass and she's eating the tree!
Daft animal.

 ABOVE:  Sue's pond, with their Loch Ness Monster. 

ABOVE: The view from the upstairs balcony... Sue's son is getting married in this garden in 3 weeks.  Sue and her husband have worked their butts off getting it looking so gorgeous for the big day.

ABOVE:  Some pretty cows up the road from Sue's.  They were quite friendly too.

ABOVE:  On our way back into Hamilton, Sue # 1 and I stopped here for a little wander.

 ABOVE:  The Area is populated by many, many chickens and ducks! The chickens are very tame, and don't even bother to move away half the time!

 ABOVE: Sue # 1 telling me all about the Redwood trees that are in a circle around her.
It's a very pretty nature park.

 ABOVE:  Hamilton's version of Stonehenge!  lol

 ABOVE:  More of the cute wildlife.  Some of those birds were super colourful.

ABOVE:  Pretty foliage, and a funky tree trunk.

And that's all I have... I actually forgot my 'good' camera, so I had to use my phone.  The photos are not too bad for a phone camera!

I got home from the FBG walk about half an hour ago.  Sadly, we missed a couple of streets, so it was a really short walk.  I will post the walk photo tomorrow.  It's a bit 'different' this time. 

Catch ya tomorrow.
