Vacation with Family and Friends

We will be heading to the Outer Banks this year and renting a very big beach house on the 4X4 beach where the wild horses run free. I love to sit on the beach and watch the horses. They have signs up all over the place that read,  “Stay 50 feet away from horses.” and “Do not touch or feed horses.”  Last year, some of them got a little too close to me as they came and stood next to me.  It was an amazing sight.  Anyone who knows me will understand that I do talk to all animals, so I tried to explain to the horses about the signs and the stated rules. Needless to say, they all just looked at me like, “Lady what’s up with you?” When the horses were near, I couldn’t move. Everyone had headed back to the beach house. It was just me the wild horses on the beach.  I was wondering how I was going to get up and walk away.  I heard people talking so I turned around to see if maybe someone could give me a hand, but it was my family and friends laughing from afar at the situation I was in. No help from the peanut gallery!!!  So once again, I tried to explain to the horses that the beach had rules to keep them safe.  I heard laughing from where my family and friends were standing, and I heard one of them say, “Oh my gosh she’s talking to them like they are going to understand her. She’s crazy!” I am crazy when it comes to animals. I also had the privilege of one of the horses bringing her baby over to visit me. They all stood around me as I sat in my chair. It seemed like it lasted forever and a day. Shortly after their visit began, the pack leader whinnied and they all walked up the beach with me waving and saying, “See you all tomorrow.”  When I got up to my family and asked who took the pictures or video, with dumbfounded looks on their faces they said, “NOBODY.”  Really?  This once in a lifetime event and no one could get a photo of me with the wild horses.  Maybe this year I’ll get to see the other newborn baby named Liberty. This time, I hope someone will have a phone or camera to get my picture with the wild horses on Swan Beach at the OBX. Rock on, people. Rock on.
