Christmas Weekend Day Trip

Yesterday, Motor Man and I took a day trip to the Outer Banks. It’s been about four weeks since we’d been. Seeing ‘my’ wild horses this time of year is a little hit and miss.  During the winter, they spend much of the time in the  ‘brush’ where they’re protected from the weather.

The ocean was so calm and beautiful.

Although the temps were cool, it was a gorgeous day, and we saw a total of 29 horses. That’s a good number for a winter’s day. Many of them were on the dunes, where evidently there’s a good food source right now.

It’s always fun when we’re stopped, and one walks right by our vehicle.

As we passed through the village of Corolla, we took a little drive through the park,  which is home to the Currituck Lighthouse. I was pleased with this shot I captured.

And on the way home, we noticed this beautifully decorated historic property. This is Tara Elizabeth Manor, c. 1917, located in Jarvisburg, NC. We pass by this old home on every trip to and from the beach, but we never really noticed it until yesterday.

And this was what originally caught our eye: the 1949 Ford Truck parked in the yard.

I did a little research and discovered a Facebook page for Tara Elizabeth Manor. It was purchased in 2016, and has been completely renovated/restored.

As I’ve said before, we always see something different on each trip to the beach.
