Day at the Races

Another beautiful end-of-summer day and matinee races at Kensington.  Days like this I miss having a horse but it was nice just to sit and watch everybody else working, too. 

I love this picture:

We start them young on the Island.

The view around this turn is breathtaking.  PEI is surprising for its hills and wonderful views of farmland and woods.

Old-fashioned racing with the horses tied to the trailers, kids running everywhere, blankets instead of purses to be won, no betting except between friends and a lot of people who really love their animals.  Lots of sun, hot dogs on the grill and pop in big buckets of ice.  Now I'm sleepy....
