September on Sable Island

The wild horses greeted our small group after we landed on the beach on Sable Island... an early sign that this was going to be a very special day! It was picture-perfect. A light breeze, flowers in bloom, and of course the star attraction: gorgeous spirited horses living wild and free in the company of seals and birds! With thanks to Kattuk Expeditions for a truly magical experience we will never forget!
