After Larry’s welcome, we proceeded to the barn to meet with Barbara. While waiting for her, we got introduced to several horses at the barn to Lorna’s delight. Barbara took us outside to meet more horses in the open having wider spaces to run around. Not too long from the barn, we headed farther out to tour the farm on Larry’s golf car. Reminded me of my tour of Disneyland in CA when I was much younger. But this was a different tour that I really found fascinating. Things I saw around were of nature, almost untouched by humans. This I thought was really great for my photography. But, as I was with Larry, Barbara and Lorna, I could not just stay behind to really take my time to take a closer look at nature’s beauty, -new growth and decay at the same time, reminding me of Paul Simon’s song, “Leaves that are Green turn to Brown”. We sang a few songs together while enjoying the ride like, “Slow Down, You’re Moving too Fast", and other songs by Simon and Garfunkel. They were surprised that Lorna knew the songs too, being much younger than the three of us. Somehow, I admire Barbara seeing for the first time how a woman can command a horse to obey her while maintaining a very loving and harmonious relationship - - and this horse was big! Lorna too enjoyed herself being with “Bruiser” a huge white pup and a few horses with the guidance both from Larry and Barbara. I was a mere spectator and photographer to what was wonderfully transpiring that late morning. Btw, Lorna and I instantaneously fell in love with "Bruiser", we wanted to bring him home, a huge guard doggie and still yet a pup at that! After a few months, we learned from Larry that "Bruiser" was beaten by a snake but is recuperating quite well.
