I'm back in the saddle again...Lawton Stables...

I am back in the saddle blogging again after being on some R&R with family.

We had a great week and the time just flew past way to quickly.
I will share with you all this week some of our fun activities.

A trip to Lawton Stables at Sea Pines was on our agenda to see the beautiful horses, ride a pony named "Chicken Nugget", and pet the animals in the petting zoo. The history of Lawton Plantation is very interesting so click on the above link and read about the two wonderful NY gals who founded this site in 1867.

Finally my first pony ride on "Chicken Nugget".
Giddy up!

If you are visiting Hilton Head Island stop at Lawton Stables with your family for some fun!
Donations are accepted for the petting zoo.
Pony rides are $10 and are really priceless to see the smile on the babies faces!

  16. Joyce,

    Your photos can have such a simple subject but capture so much in them! Your photos amaze me. I'm trying real hard to improve my photography skills. I think I can learn some things from you. Your lighting always seems so perfect and that is what I seem to have trouble with.

    Keep posting those photos!! Love em!
