The Inside Rail

First leg of a four-state road trip.

Middleburg to Fair Hill to Monmouth Park to Cape May (ferry ride) to Rehoboth Beach to Delaware Park and back to Middleburg. Fireworks in the air and hoping for fireworks from Gostisbehere, Douglas Road, Eons and maybe a few others.

Miles chased tadpoles and swam with a Labrador Retriever in the Big Elk Creek at Fair Hill last night, fresh blackberries from the garden for road-trip snack, pizza for dinner. He’s sleeping in this morning. Annie taking Apse and Eagle Poise (a Saratoga winner and a Grade 3 stakes winner) to Culpeper Horse Show.

Happy 4th of July everybody.
