I Left the Farm

10 Jul

I shared that I was actually taking a short vacation for the first time in something like ten years.  It was really a great break for me.  I left the beautiful rolling hills of Iowa and headed east.

The miles across Illinois flew past.

My first stop was in Indiana.  I have no idea who threw their shoe out the car window.  It wasn’t me.

I got to visit the beautiful campus of Ball State University at Muncie, Indiana.

My nephew Chris was kind enough to give me the walking tour of campus.  Too bad it was 102* F for the tour.

Still it was a beautiful campus, and I enjoyed seeing Chris.  The next morning, I continued east enjoying the changing scenery.

Finally I arrived in New York.

It was always beautiful outside my car window.

After 1050 miles, I finally reached my destination in the amazing Finger Lakes region of western New York.  I was attending Beaverfest!  Don’t ask because I don’t think I can explain how my trip was given this name, but it was fun.

I got to meet the very beautiful Isobelle Golightly and her lady.

I also got to meet The Goat Borrower, Mimi Foxmorton.

Isobelle and all of her friends seemed happy to meet us as well.

Truly this was a wonderful weekend enjoying the company of my goat sisters!

I’m sure I’ll have many more pictures from the trip posted on my photography blog through the next few weeks.  I actually might have enough barns for Barn Charm to last into next year.  You can also see more of Beaverfest on the Sisterhood of the Goat Facebook page (link in my sidebar).  Now that I’m back home, I’ll be making my way around the blogosphere to see what all I’ve been missing out on.
