A kiss for luck as I climb shakily into the saddle.
Your smile giving me the confidence I need.
You look so at home and so at ease.
The bright sun makes the beach golden.
We sit atop your chestnut ponies.
Walking them slowly.
Wet hoof prints scuffling through the sand.
They wait patiently for our cue.
We talk and laugh.
I've never seen your angelface light up this way.
So full of joy.
We give them a gentle kick and they're off.
I struggle to stay upright and you laugh.
You cut the mock race short.
Disappointing the horses.
We pull them to a stop and tie them up to some driftwood.
We walk to the water's edge.
Hand in hand.
Wind blowing gently through your dark hair.
The sun bathing us, warming us.
Embracing tightly as the waves lap at our feet.
Sea spray dotting our faces
Making a lasting memory that we'll never forget.
