This is the last post about our honeymoon and it’s all about our last day on the ranch. It was that cool. We started the day as usual; delicious hot breakfast at 8:30, and then down to the coral for a ride. This wasn’t just any ride though, it was the cattle drive. The first part of a cattle drive is finding the cattle. We got to ride through natural mountain bluffs and through the woods without a trail. Our wrangler encouraged us to spread out, and look for cattle. If something looked interesting I could go take a look. Clay thought it was fun to get behind our wrangle and moo, and I found some logs to hop over. I could have done that all day. Eventually another group found the cattle and we all met up with them for the big drive back to the farm.
After the calves were taken care of we had the choice of driving them back out again or taking a nap. We took a nap. Then we got all dressed up for a cocktail party at the owners house. The house was gorgeous, the booze free and we’d already drunk our complementary bottle of champagne while getting ready. After cocktail hour we headed to the saloon for dancing (mostly on the bar) and to play pool. I drank too much and told the owner I was going to come back and work for him. And truly I was less homesick as I was ready to ship my animals out to the ranch. Ranch living is definitely a style that suited us.
