Over the weekend, we went over to the family farm. Well, it is Cameron’s parent’s hobby farm. I am a city boy, or what some people would call a ‘townie’. Yep. They don’t say ‘townie’ in a very affectionate way. Anyway, it is always nice visiting the farm. Animals do make you calmer. The horses and the cows and the dogs… all pretty welcoming! The first time I have gotten close to a Shetland pony too! His name is ‘Laddie’.
It was a brilliant day, so I took the DJI Phantom 4 to fly around the property. Took some aerial pictures of the farm and also went up close to a cow! Cows don’t really allow people to get close. If they see you coming, they will turn and walk away. Not fun. Using the drone, you get much closer since they don’t know what it is! The many times that I have gone over to the farm, I have never thought about how large the land is. Apparently Cameron’s mum grew up on a much larger farm. Much much larger. This ‘townie’ just can’t imagine how large as what I saw over the weekend through the lens of the drone was already pretty big.
