If you get excited at the thought of being surrounded by animals, the Outer Banks will become your new favorite vacation spot. Home to a vast range of unique wildlife, this region features lots of protected and unspoiled land that encourages growth in animal populations.
Summer has settled over the Outer Banks and a little past where the paved road ends in Corolla, the heat of the day is settling in. It promises to be a great beach day, warm temperatures, the ocean cool—but not too cold, and the surf rolling in with one and two foot waves. Families are on the beach enjoying the day…and not just human families. A stallion and his harem—three mares and a colt—are playing in the surf. No one is quite sure why the Corolla Wild Horses seem to enjoy the surf so much, but the most reasonable explanation is for the same reason that people enjoy the beach—it’s a great way to cool off.
Greetings from the Outer Banks! We hope you are enjoying your Monday and looking forward to coming to see us at the beach very soon. This week we bring you a different perspective on the beach – an aerial view.
We have posted many pictures here previously of the Corolla Wild Horses that roam freely north of Corolla in the Carova, Swan Beach, and N.C. State Park areas. This week we bring you some more pictures, and we bring you a news story. It seems there was a breakout of the horses last week and a group of them made a run for it to the lush grass yards of Corolla.
When you think of vacationing in the Outer Banks the first thing that comes to mind is probably beach related activities. What you may not realize is the Outer Banks is consistently ranked one of the best family destinations and offers some super-cool kid activities not found elsewhere.
Horsin’ Around in Corolla
So I am sure you are all aware of the Corolla Wild Horses that roam freely on the Northern Outer Banks. Today we share a rare photo of one of those horses, that is wild in a different sort of way.
We hope you have a great day and are looking forward to trick or treating tonight! Today on Memory Monday we share with you some photos from this past summer submitted to us by Patty DuPont of Red Bank, New Jersey who stayed with us at Outer Banks Blue in the Corolla area this past July.
