Wild horses

2 May

My wildest dreams were realized today when we  saw wild horses on the beach. They are the wild horses of Corolla in the Outer Banks. I immediately thought of one of my favorite books growing up, Misty of Chincoteague (which none of my fellow travelers had heard of), when I saw these three – a mare, a stallion, and their baby – standing on the shore. They were totally calm and unfazed  by us and our many cameras. It was amazing.

    Nobody had heard of Misty of Chincoteague? What kind of friends do we have? Clearly you needed me there. Sigh….
