Friday’s Fences – Beauty On The Beach

Last week, Motor Man and I rode up on the beach at the Outer Banks. Even though it was a cloudy day, and we didn’t see many horses, there was beauty to be found on the beach.

Same photo, but I used the “I’m Feeling Lucky” option in Picasa to edit it.

 The edge of the surf almost has a lacy look to it in the next picture. This fence on the Virginia/North Carolina state line keeps the wild horses confined to their protected area.

Speaking of horses, how about this beauty?

This one had also been resting. Just as he stood, the wind caught his tail.

It was definitely a scenic ride on the beach (no editing was done on this next photo).
