Last weekend I drove up to southeast South Dakota for a family reunion. I met up with my aunt and uncle from the east coast and my cousin and his family from the west coast and joined countless others in a weekend of learning about the family, visiting, seeing the sights and other activities. One evening under a beautiful blue sky at a relative’s farm a gorgeous stagecoach powered by two beautiful horses showed up. A “Surprise” by our host.
And it wasn’t just for looking at, we were all offered rides and I do believe every single person there had a short ride or two.
Some even got to ride shotgun with the driver.
It was a beautiful sight.
Smiles all around inside. You can’t ride a coach and be unhappy.
My aunt and uncle from the east coast loved it.
They were there for a while making sure everybody got to ride. I loved the shadows on the stage. The workmanship and finish on the coach was exquisite.
Shotgun was a favorite of the younger set. They had the ability to climb up the wheel to get there!
It was a get together that nobody there will soon forget.
