A sampling of what got me questioned...

Wanna play a round of golf?




























I walked to town today instead of taking a piki, and I'm so glad I did. I had my camera, so I decided to take pictures of the golf course. I've wanted to do this for a long time, but there was no way I was taking my hand off the back of the motorcycle each time to snap some photos.

The golf course makes me smile. I did actually see someone playing one time, but these pictures show you what I see nearly every day. The first picture, if you look closely at the top third of the photo, you can see the end of a "cattle drive" across the course. Some boys were taking their cows to a different "pasture."

Also, since this nice little stream runs through it, there are women washing clothes here EVERYDAY and "hanging" them out to dry on the grass. The grass is tall and thick enough for them to lay out a lot of clothes, which they usually do. Which brings the question: How could you find a golf ball in grass like that?

The last golf course picture was taken just to prove that someone does cut some of the grass shorter in places. I guess this has to be a tee box or a green. On second thought, someone could have just tethered a goat in the center and let him eat the surface area. It does look kind of circular...













This was my view as I walked into town, and the last picture I took before I got questioned...

I'm sure the police officer wanted to know what was so special about these pictures.

Why would an American girl take a picture of a golf course or a city road? Don't they have those in America? If he only knew...
