What other animal would stand there for ten minutes while I took closeups of his eye? LikeLike Reply Love the photo and the quote (and horses too). LikeLike Reply Thanks Debbie. The horse and I were watching the steam engine go by and we both decided that a horse eye selfie would be better than another train shot. 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’m not that into trains, but I enjoy viewing your train photos. 🙂 LikeLike Reply A train is a train but a hundred year old steam engine is a trip back in time.

I’ve actually gone there in the morning to watch the engine warm up and turned around deciding its not as exciting as it was in my mind. Fortunately on the way back is a small town full of local oddities. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Do you have any posts/photos of the local oddities? Sounds like a great place to explore.

What you can also spy in his little eye if you look carefully is me holding the camera and a very drunk tourist sitting on a bench. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Ha!
