Horse Country

Mr Geniaus' cousin lives in horse country in Virginia. We enjoyed our two days reminiscing with  them and poring over old family photos. Yesterday they took us out into thevVirginia countryside to view a steeplechase on a beautiful old Virginia property, Ben Venue Farm. The owner kindly hosted the "Old Dominion Hounds Point to Point" on her property.

The cousins prepared a beautiful picnic and packed it into the back of her truck with a few rugs, we then  piled into the vehicle and travelled through the beautiful blue hills of Virginia to the venue. We parked our truck on a slope overlooking the course and settled in for a fun afternoon of eating, drinking, chatting and watching. Thankfully the skies were clear and there was no wind so the atmosphere was perfect.
