We spent the morning on Assateague Island. It's an absolutely beautiful spot with grassy marshes, a long stretch of seashore, and wild ponies.
When I was a kid, one of my favorite movies was Misty, based on the book Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry. It was fun to see the island that inspired the book.
And to see this beauty up close.
A chilly walk along the shoreline ended our visit. The little girl in me was quite happy.
