The Day Began With A Hamburger Sun

Friday, Motor Man took off for a couple of days and headed to the Outer Banks.

We were on the beach very early Saturday morning. It was a gray, cloudy morning with an unusual sunrise. Motor Man joked that, shortly after it rose, the sun resembled a hamburger.

We saw 32 horses, including this one taking a cattle egret for a ride, bareback.

There are numerous canals just off the beach near Carova. We’ve only once before seen horses in a canal, but three were taking a dip Saturday morning.

While we were watching, this one emerged from behind the shrubbery on the side. This was my favorite picture taken of the horses that day.

On ‘Penny’s Hill’, we found evidence of a wedding that had taken place the day before. The signs read: ” Cassie & Hank, August 29, 2014. Shoes here. Vows there. Love everywhere.” Even seeing evidence of a past wedding makes me smile.

We drove down to Cape Hatteras later in the day, and stopped at the Hatteras Lighthouse (no, we didn’t climb it). By then, the skies had cleared, and it was a pretty day for pictures.

We ended the day with an evening walk on the beach with friends.

The hamburger sun was the beginning of a fun Saturday.
