ON HORSEBACK

Astronaut Scott Kelly took this photo while orbiting the earth showing the amazing colors of nature in the Camargue Region of France…which brought me back to this vacation memory with my French cousins.

On Horseback

Raised high from rocky ground

Horse saddled for the journey from Avignon to Sainte Marie de la Mere

Camping at night under the stars until our eyes saw the marshes leading to the Mediterranean Sea

What marvels I saw along the way – living a newfound freedom

…a dream come true at 15…
