It has been a memorable day for so many reasons. I am so thankful for our practice yesterday riding these water beasts. It is clear I made all my mistakes then and was able to ride the length of the body of water without a mishap.
However, in Dunfallon’s case, we had a severe concern for his safety after multiple problems when he was practicing- in the main due to his size. We thought it best, therefore, that he ride with one of us. But he would not hear of it. And rather than argue about it we came up with a compromise. Or to be more precise, Noralei did. She offered her water horse to the pixie, as he has had the most experience being ridden.
It was a good match for both Dunfallon and his mount were equally competitive – and raced against each of us, easily surpassing Rumble and myself, and then battled Noralei and her water horse all the way to the finish.
As I have said it was an exhilarating day. And a check with Rumble’s map upon our landing revealed that we traveled the greatest distance ever.
