Actually, the title of this post should be Ohio-Virginia-North Carolina friends. You may recall my previous mentions of our friends, Renee and Mike. The four of us met on the beach at Carova a few years ago when Renee and I were both taking pictures of “our” wild horses. Yes, she’s as much a fan as I am.
Renee and Mike live in Ohio, but Carova may well be their favorite place in the world. Each year, they vacation there, and Motor Man and I take a trip to visit with them during that time.
Knowing that the four of us wanted to get an early start to our day, Motor Man and I drove to the Outer Banks the night before and stayed overnight. It was nice to wake to the sunrise over the ocean.
I particularly liked the sun’s reflection on the water’s edge…..and the footprints in the sand.
Then it was down to the business of spotting horses. And there were plenty to see, both on the dunes…
And by the ocean…
As per the usual for this time of year, there was a bit of a disagreement amongst a couple of stallions. I love that you can hear Renee say at the beginning of the video: “Woop, here we go!”
After a morning of riding, taking pictures and just catching up, we had lunch in the village of Duck.
Renee and Mike are such a sweet couple; it’s difficult and takes us forever to say: “til next time”. Several hugs are always involved.
Who would ever think a friendship could come about from two “little girls” taking pictures of wild horses on a beach?
