Where I stayed
Horse Ranch Haven
I could relax a little more this morning since I prepared the soup for today last night and we still had plenty of pierogi from Babcia Irenka to finish. The barley soup was so good, each of us had seconds and then suffered from overstuffing
Ania went out to wash her car and a minute later I hear laughter and squealing outside. I ran out with my camera to capture Ania spraying the boys with water. Everybody had tons of fun, especially after Marek had to take off his wet clothes (except for boxer shorts) and was pretending to be a Chip'n Dale. I think even the dogs were laughing.
So that all the work wouldn’t turn us into bores we decided to have some fun and ride the horses. Vanya always gets Fatra because she is the best behaved one and never gallops without a specific command. I usually ride Adah, a kind and well mannered horse who listens and responds to women. Marek, as a man, rides Cardinal, the chief of the group, and Ania’s favorite is Adagio, the crazy one. The weather was perfect for riding and the horses followed each other politely. I love to gallop but Vanya wasn’t ready so I stayed with him and let the others run. I hope he’ll get brave tomorrow so we can ride through the forest, my favorite.
We had a campfire supper again since the weather was just delightful, but we rushed it a little to be able to watch the Polish national soccer team play Cameroon in a friendly game. What a waste of time!!! When the commentators described the team from Africa as "not a threat" I knew we were in trouble. I guess I didn’t suspect that we’d lose 0:3 after one of the most boring and pitiful games I have ever seen. If this is how we intend to play in two years at the Euro 2012 Cup which is to be held in Poland and Ukraine, it will be a huge embarrassment. Bitterly disappointed, we watched an episode of “Dr. House” to cheer ourselves up.
Looking exhausted, we all decided to call it a day. What a day…
