Warm And Windy

Yes, it’s another post from our happy place: Carova, NC, home of the beautiful wild horses. I hope my readers don’t tire of kitty and horse pictures, because that could well be the end of my blogging days.

Sunday morning was dreary, cold, foggy and not the kind of weather for a drive on the beach. But, my Motor Man had faith in the weatherman’s forecast that the afternoon would be nicer.

And they were both correct: we saw sun and temps in the lower 70’s Sunday afternoon.

And, although the horses were few in number (11), the ones we saw provided us with nice pictures.

Sometimes it’s difficult to spot the horses; they like to spend time in the tall grasses. We happened to see five, all lying down.  We occasionally see one resting, but this many in one location is rather unusual…perhaps because of the windy conditions?

So beautiful.

It’s always a treat to see one of the younger horses. This is Castano, born last summer, and he is sporting a mighty fine winter wool coat and black “boots”.

We were so fortunate that he walked right by our vehicle. Such an unusual marking on his forehead. (Is a horse’s forehead referred to by different terminology?)

You know that I was just clicking away on that camera.

Did I mention that it was a breezy day?

 

Bye, Castano!

Stay safe, little one; hope to see you again soon.

Just Another Day On The Beach

Correction: Just Another GORGEOUS Day On The Beach.

It’s been a while few days since I’ve shared wild horse photos, so here are some of my recent favorites.

Although it’s always a treat to see horses by the ocean, sometimes you get the best reflections on one of the “back roads”.

I was excited to, once again, see baby Castano (first discovered on Mother’s Day) with his mom on one of the dunes. Those little legs are really getting long.

You would never guess what had the attention of this harem.  A nearby beach-goer had a radio-controlled vehicle, and although he wasn’t running it near the horses, they were definitely curious.

It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day for photos.

A penny for your thoughts.

And my favorite picture of the day, capturing a playful encounter by the water.

We had the windows down, and our local oldies station (WGH, 1310.  You can listen online too) on the radio. It was amazing to me how many songs we heard related to our surroundings:

“I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” (‘Like a river flows, surely to the sea’)
“Montego Bay”
“Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay”
“The Swim”
“Brandy” (‘My life, my love and my lady is the sea’)
“Summer Rain” (‘all summer long, we spent dancing in the sand…we sailed into the sunset’)

Just another perfect day on the beach.
