The Day Began With A Hamburger Sun

Friday, Motor Man took off for a couple of days and headed to the Outer Banks.

We were on the beach very early Saturday morning. It was a gray, cloudy morning with an unusual sunrise. Motor Man joked that, shortly after it rose, the sun resembled a hamburger.

We saw 32 horses, including this one taking a cattle egret for a ride, bareback.

There are numerous canals just off the beach near Carova. We’ve only once before seen horses in a canal, but three were taking a dip Saturday morning.

While we were watching, this one emerged from behind the shrubbery on the side. This was my favorite picture taken of the horses that day.

On ‘Penny’s Hill’, we found evidence of a wedding that had taken place the day before. The signs read: ” Cassie & Hank, August 29, 2014. Shoes here. Vows there. Love everywhere.” Even seeing evidence of a past wedding makes me smile.

We drove down to Cape Hatteras later in the day, and stopped at the Hatteras Lighthouse (no, we didn’t climb it). By then, the skies had cleared, and it was a pretty day for pictures.

We ended the day with an evening walk on the beach with friends.

The hamburger sun was the beginning of a fun Saturday.

  14. Talk about a title that grabs your attention …. Very fitting – never would’ve thought of it, but that’s exactly what it looks like! All of these are great, and that Hatteras pic could be a postcard !

    Another great batch of pictures! The sun is perfectly sharped like a hamburger, amazing! The horses are so pretty as always. I love the one of the bird on the horse’s back. God’s creatures are so fun and interesting. Chuck and I love to visit lighthouses when we can, we have been to the one at Cape Hatteras several times and enjoy each and ever times. It was special that you ran upon that wedding site. You captured it beautifully!

  17. Oh! Wow! What a fabulishious Day!

  18. Love the hamburger sun! And the photos of the horses. I’ve missed visiting and getting my regular dose of your artistic eye. Happy Fall, happy September! ~ Sheila

  19. Sounds like you had a relaxing and lovely weekend. Enjoyed seeing your photo of the lighthouse at Hatteras. Hubby and kids climbed it when we were there — too hot, humid, and claustrophobic for me inside!

  20. That does look like a hamburger sun, a quite unusual sight. Good horse shots, love the egret riding bareback. Looks like a lovely time.

  21. I think we are all in agreement–we love the Dianna coined phrase “hamburger sun” so perfect, I loved the bouncing egret and for desert the three swimming horses. Looked a picture perfect (yes, pun intended) Labor Day weekend and I am Happy for you both!

  22. WONDERFUL pics! The only thing missing in the first one are the words “Burger King” 🙂 And it looks like you already have your entries for next year Corolla Wild Horse calendar! Thanks for sharing – makes me wish I was at the beach again!
