Horses on Chesterman

Daughter A and I went for a very rainy walk on the weekend. While rounding the corner at the point of Chesterman Beach, we saw this apparition down the beach...



We walked closer...



...and closer...



Horses, of course, are rare these days on Chesterman, but occasionally you might see one, even on the bike path. Years ago, when horses were a mode of travel for a few (not many people had horses out here; a bit hard to get one in without a road) you might have seen horses on Chesterman or Long Beach. And cattle, too. When "the book" is out, I'll tell you more. (I promise; I will do a post about this book one day. It needs a title and more details before "the reveal.") One fellow actually had 50 steer at Long Beach. Amazing to think of today.

[Apologies for the poor photos. It was really raining hard!]
