We met at a Mexican place, but I’m essentially an adult toddler when it comes to food and don’t like anything interesting. As L said, an ethnic food buffet would be basically my worst nightmare. So I just drank soda and starved. No, I had breakfast before and lunch after.
It was great to get to talk to people and meet people in person that I’ve “known” for so long online. Unfortunately, I had to head out early as I needed to get to Dover before getting home. We were supposed to go to the winery with Eugene and test him being tied up there so that we could ride to Alice’s restaurant from Wunderlich next time we go. We ended up not doing that because it was freaking hot so I could have stayed at the meet up, but c’est la vie.
The Dover store is really far from my home and the meet up was close(ish) to it, so I needed to make a quick stop to pick up air canisters for the Hit-Air vests. Since I was still trying to get back before the winery closed, I didn’t even have time to shop for fun things, so I grabbed the canisters from hold and headed back on the road. All that driving for no fun. I’m hopping to go back for the tent sale coming soon.
As I was driving back, my husband called to say we should skip the winery due to heat, so I peeled off the highway and went to the used tack shop right before it closed. I’m glad I did though as I managed to score a red saddle pad for Eugene for only $8. I also picked up two bits to try with Nilla.
All in all, it was a great day. I really look forward to meeting up with fellow bloggers again. If you’re a local blogger or reader, feel free to email me if you ever want to get together. I have extra horses and a membership at a winery that can be ridden to from my barn.
