Wild Horses At Sunrise

Recently, Motor Man and I bought an older model Jeep. We wanted a four-wheel drive vehicle that we could take out on the beach down at the Outer Banks. Yesterday morning was its inaugural trip. We set the alarm for  oh dark: thirty 4:30 AM, and drove up past Corolla.

I’ll share the sunrise photos on Saturday for Sunrise Saturday. But I couldn’t wait to share with you what else we saw on our drive up the beach. (Warning: LOTS of photos today.)

I was SO excited to see two of the wild mustangs out enjoying the view of the ocean at sunrise.

Soon, they were joined by a third.

Then, a fourth!

And if this weren’t beautiful enough,

Along came a fifth horse from over the dunes, with the early morning wind in its mane.

Isn’t that gorgeous? As you can imagine, I was beside myself as we just stood there and watched all these horses gather in front of us.

They reminded me of the senior’s coffee club, meeting at Hardee’s for breakfast the morning gossip.

A shot of Motor Man with the horses in the background. As you can see, once we spotted the horses and Motor Man stopped, I exited the vehicle so quickly, I didn’t even take time to close my door.

Proof that you don’t have to be a horse to have a windblown “mane”.

After the horses finished their morning visit, they separated and began walking away.

With photos like these waiting to be taken, getting up before the crack of dawn is SO worth it.
