Reaching the Pacific Ocean by horseback was a dream come true for me. When we arrived, Dawn and I plunged in to taste and feel the Pacific for the first time. The roar of the surf was exhilarating. Of all the places on the west coast to meet the Pacific, Dog Beach, California was it. At least Myles was allowed here. The event was not as romantic as I had always envisioned it to be, nonetheless, I was intoxicated with a sense of personal achievement. I had the urge to swim with Dawn into the sea forever. For a few brief moments in time, my horse and I were alone with the mighty ocean.


My first glimpse of the mighty Pacific Ocean, behind the ears of a horse.
