Making Time For the Horses

In the past week, Motor Man and I have hosted a family reunion, attended a boat race, he’s worked on engines, I’ve been for a doctor’s appointment, visited with two nieces (including one who’s in town from halfway across the country)….and we still found time to (s-q-u-e-e-z-e) in a trip to the Outer Banks to see a few wild horses.

Scenery like this alone would make the trip worthwhile, but, thankfully, we saw a few horses, too.

Although we’ve had temps in the 90’s this week, there has also been some rain, which provided areas of fresh drinking water for the horses.

The picture brings to mind the song “Knee Deep (in the water somewhere)”.

And how convenient?  There was a “pick your own” salad bar.

We also saw this group,”chilling” by the ocean on a hot day.

Motor Man and I keep a pretty busy schedule, but we love those quick getaways to the beach.

  1. You have the BEST quick getaways. Thanks for taking us along for the ride. Always LOVE ‘your’ horses. Getaways are best after a full, busy week.

  2. Terrific photographs, Dianna! That first shot is amazing! Happy Weekend, my friend.

  3. Thankfully, you do always get that time away to get to the beach, as that means that we do, too, even if it is vicariously!! I’ll take it! I loved the last shot of all of the horses together. Fun post!

  4. You two are on the go constantly. I’m glad you take time out to relax at the outer banks and soak up the beauty of the horses and scenery. I enjoyed your video and photos very much. 🙂

  5. So nice to see the horses relaxing on the beach!

  6. Those quick trips are sometimes the best !
    Love that first cloud pic! – almost looks like smoke coming up in the distance..

    Your quick trips to the beach are not only good for you and JR but us too! Thanks so much for sharing.

  8. You two are so lucky to be close enough to head off to the beach on the spur of the moment for a “horse fix” or those famous chicken chunks (!) or just some peace and quiet……………..Beautiful photos!


  9. You are so blessed that you can just jaunt down to the beach whenever you have the time. And you bless us with your photos!

  10. And lots of good pictures in your short window of time! We saw some of those unusually “tall” clouds when we came back from Fredericksburg that weekend.
