Pony Hunting in Beaufort, North Carolina

One of the delights of Beaufort, North Carolina, is the sanctuary across from town, and the ponies that roam the island. Last spring we were anchored along Taylor Creek, and saw the ponies from Mr Mac. This time we were anchored in Town Creek, north of Beaufort proper, so we had to seek out ponies. Above is a picture of the sun shining on Freedom’s dinghy and crew as they search for ponies ashore. We actually found a small herd of them, feeding at the water’s edge. Then it was time to “assume the position,” picture-taking position, that it. Roberta and Laura immortalize the ponies with digital photos while John just horses around (no, I’m not going to apologize for that pun).

  1. I remember riding among the wild ponies in New Forest, United Kingdom. Awesome experience. I'm desperately longing to do the same in Camargue (France) and on Iceland.
