Thursday horseback rides

We live in the country.  Horses are a prized possession.  Debbi has had horses most of her life.  We came to Mexico with no horses.  But, I knew it was only a matter of time before we bought one.  So one day a group of  Gringas rode by the house.  I was reading a book when I heard them coming.  I ran out the front door and stopped them.  I asked them who they were and where they were going.  It was my first meeting with Elena.  She said they ride every Thursday for several hours and Debbi was welcome to come along.  Soon we had another addition to our family, a pretty chestnut we named  "Diego".

Sometimes, while on their ride, they stop at this restaurant for lunch.  It's an Italian eatery named Foccacia.
