The Beach: Beautiful, But Brrrr…..

Our weekend included a brief trip to the Outer Banks. No, it wasn’t entirely because of my not-so-subtle hint in Friday’s post; we needed to winterize our beach house.

We squeaked in a ride up on the beach to, hopefully, see some horses. They are a little harder to find as the weather gets cooler.

Even on the dreariest days, there’s beauty to be found on the beach, but it was exceptionally nice Saturday morning. The sun peeking through the clouds made for an interesting sky.

We almost had the place to ourselves. And the sand was as smooth and firm as a highway; no need for 4-wheel-drive except when we were crossing a dune.

We only saw six horses, none of them in very attractive settings. I zoomed in on this one to avoid background clutter. You can tell he’s already wearing his winter woolies.

He needed that coat Saturday morning: 38 degrees at the beach with a wind chill of 30.

However… some folks were apparently still in summer mode.
