Pony Riding and Curb Walking

the three generations

Ben's blue jeans and bright blue riding helmet, along with pretty blue Maine skies, make for a perfect horse riding day! It was a great outing for my grandson, son-in-law, Jon's dad and a fun addition to a birthday party that was waiting for Ben at his home. The Horse riding ranch is located in Warren, Maine.

Taking a break from the farm chores, my grandson Ryan and I headed for the Pacific Ocean on the west coast, specifically Oceanside Beach. Although the water was extremely cold to go in (except for some local surfers), fortunately we soon found a nearby playground. I noticed my grandson was watching his balance as he walked around the curb. Photos for Mandarin Orange Monday.
