Another Reason Why…

I like living in a semi-rural area. The other afternoon Nolemana and I were on our way somewhere, and we saw something that just gave me the biggest smile! I couldn’t pull over right away, but when I could, I let another car pass, then backed up so that I could take some photos. Why?

This is why! On an actual sunny day in this June of record rain, a lady was out for a drive. But not in her kawila… in a pony cart! I asked if I could take her photo (all I had was Nolemana’s cell phone) and she said yes.

Try look!! In this one, the pony was kinda shy.

Isn’t this just great? Such a lovely spring day, and this lovely wahine and her pony were out for a ride.

The two of us had a really nice conversation, talking about what a beautiful, sunny day it was and how wonderful it was to go riding in a pony cart on our quiet roads.

“The only thing,” she said, “is that I wish this cart was better padded!” Then off she went and off we went, waving to each other as we drove on, quite a bit faster than she was going.


I love living in the country! First I get pīpī on da loose, den goats in da road, and now a nice wahine out for a drive on a sunny day. Life is good!

    Wow! I’m so glad you had a ‘camera’ with you. That’s a great moment to capture and to share here on your blog. I think I told you that I carry my camera wherever I go. I bought a special purse that accommodates the camera where I can grab it quickly if I want. The purse is like a backpack because I’m always pulling off the road taking trails to shoot photos at any given moment.

    Keep on photographing and attaching stories like this with it. It is a great way to experience your life through your eyes! I’m for that! 😀

    I’ve never seen a pony cart like that – what a treat to encounter it unexpectedly! And what a beautiful day it was.

    Very cute! I do see things like that quite often here, as we are in the middle of Amish and Mennonite country. It makes you ponder about how fast we live our lives sometimes-to see a nice horse drawn cart…

    Oh sweeeeet! Pretty chestnut pony, too! I loved growing up in the country…

  5. That is almost TOO wonderful! I’d have stopped, too! (But I couldn’t have done the photo; I haven’t figured out how to get them from the phone to the computer. =oP )
