To go for a sunset beach ride, on a deserted tropical beach, on your honeymoon, is a childhood fantasy that doesn’t always get to come true. But Eunice made her dream come true.
It’s not everyday I get to be part of someone’s dream event. This afternoon was a particularly special event . After a big busy wedding overseas, Eunice and her new husband Joe came to Mauritius to spend a bit of quality time together before joining the rest of the world again as husband and wife. I was lucky enough to spend the afternoon and early evening with them.
The stable’s dogs followed us along on the walk. The dogs are always around the horses. If not under their hooves, they like to sleep in the shade along the edges of their paddock. The dogs had followed us down the road to the beach for our sunset walk. Joe and Eunice thought it was a quaint addition to the ride and said they felt as though the dogs were following along to guard them.
I am always amazed when I am reminded that no matter where we come from, so many of our dreams and small delights are the same as another’s.
Congratulations Eunice and Joe, I wish you the very best in your new life together.
P.S: My little girls can really relate to Eunice’s dream, have a look at this blog post of them dressed up like princesses with their “stallions”.
