The Most Beautiful Place
The most beautiful place for me is our summer Ranch in Columbia
Kentucky. I adore the beautiful property with 500 acres of lush green grass
and a running creek surrounding the whole property. There are large ponds,
mountains and hills, when you enter the property you must go around lots of
winding curves that would scare most visitors, but not me I love the
adventure of what lies ahead. I love to go out side every morning early and
feed my Horses and listen to the birds chirping. Hummingbirds are
always abundant in the summertime they are so cute!
In the winter time it is really quite charming . The creek freezes over so every winter
we have ice fights and sometimes try to cross the creek without falling in.
My younger brother Holden loves to take the telescope outside every night
and star gaze, we really enjoy this, because in Kentucky there is a lot more
stars in the sky, there must be 100,000 stars in the skies, and the
moon is so large and unique looking it‘s truly amazing to me. Sometimes we
light a bon fire and roast marshmallows around the fire and let off fireworks.
I have 38 Tennessee walking Horses on the Ranch and they are so pretty to
watch as they gallop across the hills of the property. I enjoy taking them in
the barn and brushing their coats and feeding them hay.
Forget about all of the other sunsets you have seen before, because none
of them compare to the ones in Kentucky! They are out of this world you can
see the silhouette of the hills and mountains in the back ground. At night
when we settle in my family goes on the wrap a round back porch when is 30
feet in the air where we are overlooking the whole back area of our property
and it is amazing when you look out and see thousands of fireflies! Never do
you so these things in Florida anymore. If you listen carefully you can hear
the coyotes howling every night just before bedtime.
Sometimes when its been a while since I have been there I almost forget
how beautiful and exciting of a place it is, until I return and think to myself,
thank you God for allowing me to have such a wonderful chance to
appreciate the beauty of this land.
