If you have been checking the blog, I apologize for the lack of updates. One of the first lessons learned about living in rural areas is that internet access is not a trivial matter. Trivial or not, it has now been resolved and today's update is about Mockingbird Hill.
Mockingbird Hill is a thoroughbred farm located nearby. I'm here to say that Sanger, Texas, and northwest Denton County, is horse country. That means it is a good environment for Janet. It is pleasant and relaxing to look around and see them grazing. It is enjoyable to note the numerous lakes dotting the rolling countryside.
It appears that horse country is also pretty good for cycling. There are numerous lightly-traveled roads nearby with plenty of options for short or long rides that are scenic and do not require constant traffic vigilence.
It was a cloudy, windy, and humid morning for a ride. Still, it seemed good to get an hour of riding in before the day becomes busy. The following photo is the road along Mockingbird Hill Thoroughbred Farm (left side). Most of the roads near the new homestead look like this. Makes you want to ride...doesn't it?
