Motor Man and I took a day trip to Carova on the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Sunday. It had been four weeks since our last visit, and “one of us” was starting to shake….
We only saw ten horses, but those we saw gave us some smiles and photo ops.
These two were busy checking out the bird feeder in someone’s yard.
“They need to make these things horse-sized. Can’t. Quite. Reach……”
But some of you know that our very favorite place to spot the horses is by the water. With the sun, the water’s beautiful blue, the white waves and those amazing horses, this was just about the perfect set-up.
Motor Man was so patient; he’d drive up the beach, so we could wait for the horses to come toward us. I would take pictures, the horses would walk by us, then he would drive further up the beach, and…repeat.
But, then, those four did something that I’m not sure we’ve ever really seen (in person) before: they starting running along in the surf. And, although this really shows what a wimp I am, it was so beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes.
And in this next picture, don’t they seem to be looking out over the ocean and discussing their view? “Yeah, I gotta say: this is the life….”
Hi, hi, hi, beautiful Sunday
This is my, my, my, beautiful day
When you say, say, say, say that you love me
Oh, my, my, my, it’s a beautiful day
So thank you to the horses and my Motor Man for a breathtaking Sunday drive.
