Oakwood Farm

It was with the best of intentions that the Club scheduled a Spring drive at Oakwood – such a great place to get fresh horses out without the worry or bother of road traffic.  Sadly the clouds rolled in dark and ominously and the weather forecasters spoke with great trepidation about a possible deluge, thunder, lightning and general storminess.  Cancelling the picnic drive, which had been scheduled for noon that day, seemed the only thing to do.  That, however, did not stop of few BOLD Club members from meeting to drive the Oakwood grounds at about 10:00 a.m.  Vicki Baturay joined Caroline and Bertrand Collomb, along with a guest from Germany.  They took out two carriages and managed to get over the fields, through the woods, down to the big pond and back before the rain hit.  Don’t know, wasn’t there but I expect there was some Champagne consumed somewhere along the way, and probably a lovely luncheon afterwards!
