Swimming to an Island, on our horses!

I live in Florida and the "winter" here is a joke. It hit about 80 the other day and we went for a swim at the intercoastal. This is where the river meets the sea so you encounter anything from dolphins to manatees.

The tide was low and water never really got above the top of their shoulders and if it did it was momentarily. We rode/swam/walked/tread to this island and even got greeted by a lone dolphin. Weird seeing one in such shallow water and so close. Anyway...enjoy

BTW, the white mare is mine. She's a Spotted Saddle x Rack and that handsome fellow seen with her is your average paint...and he's a stud. As you can tell, the most well behave and mannered stud ever.

Looks like a blast! *secretly plans a visit*

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

That looks like so much fun! I live in ga on the ga/fl line and it's been so warm here too. I'm used to seeing dolphins pretty much every time I go to the beach, they're so cool! I wish I had a place here to take my horse swimming :(
