Northlands

I had nothing on the agenda for yesterday, so I ended up venturing up to Northlands Park for a thoroughbred fix. The weather was gorgeous, and the sun shining. It was a nice surprise to see that instead of the standard benches they've got hundreds of patio style couches and chairs set up all along in front of the grandstand, encouraging people to just hang out. What an excellent idea!

I for one, snagged a nice chair with an umbrella and snuggled in with a drink and good book to read (The Hearts of Horses - Molly Gloss) between races. A nice afternoon well spent!

  2. Sounds like a great day. I love hanging out @ the racetrack (and eyeballing the horses looking for my future dressage prospect, ha ha).
