It turned out there were two beaches we could choose from: one you could drive to, which, according to the Boyers, was completely packed, OR one you could only bike to (about 2.5 miles). That beach was completely empty since you had to be pretty devoted to get there, so that's the one we chose! Biking back and forth was lovely because it was all through a wildlife preserve; when it was windy it became slightly arduous, but overall was nice. Our hotel was located just 1/4 mile from Assateague Island, so we could just bike from the hotel.
|Grandpa and Gee-Gee made the the trek everyday!|
|Rayna took it all in stride|
|We got to the beach and found this sign. |
Poor Miles -- he sure loves to be naked!
|So beautiful there!|
|Strider and Nate did a lot of wakeboarding|
At night we had dinner together -- and had the opportunity to hear some more episodes of the Carol Thompson Cooking Show! Those kids sure are not lacking in personality.
And, of course, the highlight of the whole trip, especially for Colsen, was seeing the wild ponies!
We had read "Misty of Chincoteague" before the trip, so it was really neat to see all the places mentioned in the book, and picture Paul and Maureen spotting the Phantom and Misty. It was a memorable adventure!
