Cowgirls for a day!

OK, so maybe we weren't cowgirls but hey we did go "down on the farm" today!  Seven of us headed out Tuesday morning for our horse drawn wagon tour.    We are only 7 miles from the Horse Country Carriage Tours of Ocala, which was so convenient!
You can see by the pictures it was a beautiful day.  Our wagon master was Kimie!  I've read so many good reviews about Kimie and the tour and she didn't disappoint us!

Duke & Doc carried us for an hour around the farms.  

 A little hard to see the ladies...but starting on the left is Peggy, Marilyn, Marcia,  poking her head out  is Eleanor!, Jan, me and Marilyn K.

Our wagon traveled on 464 with cars passing us left and right!  But Duke and Doc remained so calm, as did Kimie...just a very relaxing ride!  And so much information from Kimie!  She provided us with so much history on horses, farms and even a little gossip!  She's quite witty and a charming wagon master!














Check out this tree!!!



I know it looks like a lot of trees...but it was so beautiful!!!








Of course, after the tour, we headed out to lunch and ended up at Ocala National's restaurant, Savannah's.   Here is a better pic of the ladies:
(l to r) Eleanor, me, Marilyn K., Jan, Marilyn L., Marcia and Peggy

 Food, conversation and of course a glass of wine for all but both Marilyn's!  Marilyn (our driver) had a Dirty Martini and our bud Marilyn had a Bloody Mary!  Oh yea, the food was great too!  Jan and I split a Mexi burger and fries (both really good!).  Three ladies each had a different salad that were huge and looked delicious.  Both Marilyn's had grilled sandwiches...one turkey and one was a patty melt.

It was so nice being with these ladies today!  Some of us knew each other and some never had met!  But we now know each other and I think we are one lucky group of ladies!

Now that was a fun way to explore Ocala's history and beauty. Cowgirls for a day sounds right to me.. Where was John Wayne when you needed him to ride up on his trusty steed! Great Group of Girlfriends...
