Yesterday was a great day for a ride out in the country so that is what we did .
This time of year is wonderful the leaves are changing and the smells of Autumn filled the air.Many families were out and about,we slowed down so this family could cross the street.
On our way home we traveled along this quite road with lovely cottages on each side it looked like something from a story when we came across this tunnel .All I could think of was the story of the headless horseman ,as we drove through it I waited for him to come gallop through the other end !! It would be GREAT for Halloween !
SLEEP WELL !!
The story is set circa 1790 in the Dutch settlement of Tarry Town, New York, in a secluded glen called Sleepy Hollow. It tells the story of Ichabod Crane, a lean, lanky, and extremely superstitious schoolmaster from Connecticut, who competes with Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt, the town rowdy, for the hand of 18-year-old Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer. As Crane leaves a party he attended at the Van Tassel home on an autumn night, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, who is supposedly the ghost of a Hessian trooper who had his head shot off by a stray cannonball during "some nameless battle" of the American Revolutionary War, and who "rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head". Ichabod mysteriously disappears from town, leaving Katrina to marry Brom Bones, who was "to look exceedingly knowing whenever the story of Ichabod was related".
