I toted my camera something like 1,600 miles and only took about 8 pictures. I had good intentions, but with the salt water sand and constantly in motion children, the only pictures I have are of the wild horses that were on the beach right in front of our house. Beautiful wild horses run free on the Outer Banks and these were in our front yard.
I also took a run (actually a walk, but don't tell) on the beach and came within maybe 10 feet of 4 more. Just gorgeous.
