Saturday, up late, and drove over to Augusta to go see the One Year Anniversary Edition of Cars & Coffee. We arrived just before 8:00 AM and the lot was already crowded. Having never been to one of these, I had this idea that it was one big happy car guy gathering, but in reality it turned out to be a Gathering of the Clans. All the like marquees bunched up to seemingly prevent any intermingling. The row of Mustangs ran 50 cars long from Washington Road to nearly the Pottery Barn store front. Finding no other Miatas to get next to, we parked one row over from the Fords and went into the Sunrise Grill for breakfast. When we came back out about 40 minutes later there was one pickup truck two spaces over, but nobody else was in the same row as us. Donna and I walked one circuit of the lot to look at the cars and then left to go get some Motoring Challenge points.
Sunday, up later than Saturday, and went to breakfast at Ridgecrest Coffee Bar. After, it was home to watch Sunday Morning and finish up the last 4 episodes of Season 3 of House of Cards. This afternoon we got off our lazy butts and went for a walk in Hitchcock Woods. Last time we were there is was in early January. Because it was probably the first really nice Sunday weather-wise this year, the woods were full of walkers, dogs and horseback riders. Our destination was the Horse Show Ring (see picture above) to eat a snack and then headed back out. Because we didn’t have a map, the walk turned out to be longer than first planned, so while never really lost, there were a few times where I wasn’t exactly sure where we were. Not that we complained any, because it was a beautiful day to take a 4 mile walk.
Started up, went down, still down.
