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!
