Sunday At The Beach

Sunday, Motor Man and I drove to the four-wheel drive beach of Carova on the Outer Banks.

It had been three months since we’d been. The beach is, naturally, a very busy place during the summer with sunbathers, kite-fliers, sandcastle-building children (and adults), fishermen, etc.  Plus, it’s been a very rainy summer, and we knew there would be many impassable areas of the beach.  So we’ve been taking our Sunday drives to other locations.

But, of course, I did miss ‘my’ wild horses.

We saw 22 of them on Sunday, including this baby. Since she didn’t cooperate by showing off any of her markings, I sent pictures of her and the adults around her to the herd manager, and learned that this is Beatrice.

Beatrice was born July 10, and at just three days old, found herself struggling in one of the many canals in the area. Thankfully three fishermen were nearby and came to her rescue. This sweet little one had heroes to help her get back to her family.

This next picture was taken through the windshield of our vehicle. Something caught the attention of this beauty, and I fully expected to see another horse approaching, but that didn’t happen. I just love the stance.

Another fun Sunday drive with my Motor Man.
