Ahhh...relaxtion...coffee and a good book!
It's been awhile since I've been here, but hubby and I were away on a relaxing vacation at an awesome Bed and Breakfast in the Outer Banks! The weather was perfect! We had just missed the tropical storm, Colin. There was lots of water on highway 12 as we neared out place to stay. But, we managed to get through it and we reached our destination with a big smile on our face! Every morning we woke to a delicious homemade breakfast by a chef. Eggs florentine, shrimp and grits, belgium waffles were just a few of the many choices...so delicious! I'm surprised I can still fit into my clothes...ha!:-)
We saw three lighthouses during our stay...Currituck, Cape Hatteras, and Bodie Island. We were one our way one morning to see another...Oracoke, but there was a three hour wait to get on the ferry. The highlight of our trip was seeing wild horses on the beach. We took a wild horse tour and saw the beautiful horses in several different places. They are protected and one is to get only within 50 feet of them. They have been known to kick and one even bit a lady on the shoulder...ouch! Also, we saw the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kitty Hawk. We visited Elizabethan Gardens. And, we did some shopping and beach time, too! Sit back and sip your favorite beverage and enjoy the photos...

We thought this one might be pregnant
I think this one is saying...Hey...I own this beach!:-)
Fresh rain water in certain areas for them to drink.

A lovely garden path.

Beach time...perfect...not too hot and not
a cloud in the sky!
Shopping time with shops right on the water
and a great boardwalk...so peaceful!
We had to walk the boardwalk so
as to walk off these delicious donuts...yum!
There was a pond by the shops with turtles. We
found this one stretching and taking in some sun!
Well, I hope you enjoyed viewing the photos! Take good care and
have a wonderful week! My thoughts and prayers go out to
Orlando...another tragedy...so sad... Peace and love to all!
