Back country riding

It has been a picture perfect day.  I even got sunburned a bit while we were out and about.  I thought that I would share some photos from the weekend.  It's been a while since we have just taken the back roads to ride around and go on a "field trip" to nowhere in particular.
Junk yards and classic car restorations are a favorite stop

You have to see what's under the hood.  Sometimes it takes your breath away. 

This brought back memories of when I had my Mustang.  It was my first car. And it was red.  I wish that I still had that car.  It was an eye catcher.  

Maybe someone will restore this old pile of rust.  

I wish I were in the land of cotton--well, I am now.  And there are a lot of acres of cotton still being planted. 

An old homestead that has seen families come and go.  I wonder what tales those walls could tell. 

And as mid-afternoon approached, it was time to do a little masking and sanding on the boat. 
We ate boiled peanuts and Vienna sausages for snacks.  Later, we ended up at a great little Mexican restaurant downtown for dinner.  It was a filled up day but a lot of fun.  

I like the good times that we share.  It's easy to be happy when there isn't any drama.  I know that I'm glad for the mundane that we had this weekend. It was a respite from a somewhat crazy two weeks.  Just cruising and doing a little work, sleeping in, having some good food, and being close as two people can be.  Now, it's time to snuggle like spoons for sleep.  In love and happy--nothing else like it.
