As usual, I am leaving a video for you to enjoy. Please leave comments - you can tell me how much you miss me!
Wild horses once roamed the Northern coast of North Carolina - what is known as the Outer Banks. They are called "Banker" horses. The horses have been part of the Outer Banks history, legacy and mystique for hundreds of years...perhaps as early as the early 1500's. It is thought they are descendants of the Spanish Mustangs brought by Spanish explorers as many as 500 years ago.
The horses no long roam free. As the population grew in this area many horses fell victim to vehicular traffic and even worse, killed by criminal hands. At this time the horses are protected by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund and are ranged and given relative freedom at the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge.

A few miles south of the refuge site the Currituck Light Station. I have visited all the lighthouses in North Carolina and I found this one to be my favorite. The Currituck Lighthouse is also known as the Corolla Lighthouse.
