Ocracoke trip

You know, we're on this biking/hiking we took our folding bikes on the boat with us to Ocracoke.  And we rode alot! 

8.5 miles to see the wild ponies down Highway 12.  I know I'm dorky.

Ponies are not so wild anymore.  They're in a pen and are fed hay....but they are in nice shape. You're not allowed close to them now.   I remember seeing them 30 years ago when they would stand at (a much rattier) fence and eat apples/carrots out of your hand.  They were not well tended then.

And of course, we then rode the 8.5 miles back to the boat.....that was plenty of exercise for a day!!
