Breakfast in America

Living happily ever after still means you have to clean house and do the dishes

Typical Ozarks recreational arrangements (365:365)

Today we sunbathed and went on a short exploratory hike. Yes, that’s right, sunbathed on the 31 December in the Northern hemisphere – I was impressed. Though to make up for this there was ice on the inside of our tent when we woke up.

My sunbathing was interrupted by a pack of horses crossing the creek, which confirmed my suspicion that there was a trail on the other side.
