On Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, Mark and I were enjoying watching the Buffalo Sabres Hockey training camp. This was so much fun, as we got to see many prospects for the team…young men with such hope in their eyes.
The Sabres head coach, Lindy Ruff, was there working with these guys and it was a treat to see him as well. One of the things I have noticed about Lindy is that during games, it is pretty hard to see him ever “crack a smile”. He really does wear his “game face” which turns into a smile when the team wins and congratulations are spoken!
As I was photographing the drills the guys were working on, I also caught a few photos of Lindy as well. I was quite pleased by one, however, as he is smiling!
I have about a zillion photos to weed through, from our wonderful little outing, although many of them involve hockey and I don’t imagine those would thrill too many of my readers!
This morning, we packed up, hitched up the little home on wheels and left our campground, which was home the past few days.
Mark discovered last night, that Fort Niagara was located only a short distance from where we had been camping, so we ventured on to have a looksee. We drove along Lake Ontario, and some of the homes were palacial mansions. One of the homes we passed looked like a huge almost “office building”, crossed with a Frank Lloyd Wright hybrid. It had enormous gates in front, keeping out the riff-raff! (no photos, as I feel “funny” doing such things!)
Across the road from this most astonishing home was a most astonishing barn which reflected much the same type of architecture. I never saw anything like it. But, there was a sign declaring “Visitors by Appointment Only” which led me to believe that perhaps their horses were just as special as the barn which houses them! (I know, SHOULD have photographed the barn!)
So, I will offer these two photos I took this morning, as I am getting cross-eyed looking at other photos!
Anyone have any idea what breed these horses are?
