If this sweet little foal doesn't make you smile, then something might just be wrong with ya! Thank you to the folks at the Corolla Wild Horse Fund for sharing this lovely pic.The baby girl's name is Esperanza, or "Hope" in Spanish. She was born on the Currituck Outer Banks within the area designated as a wild horse sanctuary. The horses that roam freely within the reserve are often called "Banker Horses." They are the descendents Spanish mustangs brought to the "New World" by ship during the 16th century.
Bentley: Our Newest (and Smallest) Beach BumAllow me to introduce you to Bentley... He may only weigh 5 pounds, but I'm guessing he has ample "big dog" attitude to compensate for his diminutive size. :)Bentley had a very busy time while on the Outer Banks. This trip was the lil' man's first beach experience, but he had no problem acclimating to the coast. Bentley had a blast romping in the sand and socializing with the other beach doggies. However, he didn't spend too much time in the water. This is certainly understandable given the fact that Bentley is on the petite side.
Many Outer Banks fanatics are watching the snow come down and wondering when the heck spring will get here. Well, don't get down in the dumps! Your OBX vacation will be here before you know it, and this "summery" beach pic is sure to make you smile!Thanks to Lyndi Harris Photography for sharing this little cutie with us.
Serendipity, better known as the "Nights in Rodanthe House," has been a victim of the relentless surf in recent years. In the movie, the dramatic tides added to the ambience. In real life, Serendipity's owners were ordered to either move the home or tear it down after Dare County declared it a public nuisance. The house itself was in excellent condition, but the beach around it was not. When it was built in 1988, Serendipity had 400 feet of beach in front of it. As you can see from the pre-move pics, the beach had almost entirely eroded.
