AsÂ part of the activities that we set for our stay in my hubby’s place,Â we went mountain hiking to my father in law’s ranch. In going there, it would take 2 hours, we had to climb 3 mountains and a very looong walk!
It was the first time that I rode on the back of a carabao and as well as Ate Princess. I thought that it would be easier and not tiring to rideÂ on itÂ than to walk but I was wrong, I had to use more effort in keeping myself steady and go with the flow of the carabao’s back muscle whereever it would sway especially in going downhill. And there’s another carabao, a smaller one, who kept on rubbing itself to the one that we are riding and it just came to my senses that it wants to be near to its mom, and our foot kept on being crushed wheneverÂ the baby carabao would come near us.
It was also Kuya D’s firstÂ carabao ride. The secondÂ picture,Â Ate P and Mommy (ate Amy’s Mom).Â
When we reached our destination, Papa San gave us a treat! Lots and lots of young coconuts (buko)! We feasted on the fresh buko and the kids were busy with their sling shots and the target, a tree near the cows.
The above 1st picture, I took this while we were on top of the 2nd mountain.
