When my daughter was just a little girl, she loved horses. Even after she (and her mom) had one of their very own, she still loved to visit the beautiful, oak-canopied stables at Ballast Point and play on the swings in the Jules Verne Park located along the bay. The stables are still there, just south of Gandy Boulevard and off Bayshore on Interbay, and they are even more relaxing and filled with lazy southern charm as ever. This evening my daughter's little guy, just 2 years old, my grandson, visited the stables and was as enthralled by the horses as was his mom when she was his age. Some things never change. The stables and horses are still intriguing and watching a little one dreaming and imagining a special world all his own is what makes life so wonderful. One day he may be a champion Olympic equestrian.
