Classical Playtime

Horribly difficult on the hill and in tall grass, but fun nonetheless.  It's one of my favorite spots in the entire world where the two flanking trees feel like an open air proscenium meant for ballet.  A natural raked stage and scenery.  The classical french theatre used to work so hard to make their scenic backdrops have this rich landscape. So, once I was able to see that in my mind's eye I had to fill it with some dancing.
