Chincoteague Ponies Part 2

We rented some kayaks one day and paddled around the bay/marsh area between Chincoteague and Assateague Islands.

That turned out to be a much better way to see the ponies! They were very nice to pose themselves right in front of the lighthouse for some pictures!

The number brand signifies the year that horse was rounded up as a foal so several in this group were last year’s babies.

We also paddled over to the public beach on Assateague. There was no one there except us. The only access to that beach is by boat. The biting flies were terrible!

We could see the Wallops Island Space Center where they’ve been launching rockets from lately. Mr. C was bummed because they were going to do a launch while we were there but they postponed it and we missed it by one day!

    I think I want to go there — first, I need to learn how to pronounce it !!

    Flies on Little Beach, the beach you paddled to, are only bad under certain wind conditions…a great place…worth another try!

    Must re-educate myself about the ponies and this beautiful place….and hope to visit someday! Glad you and Mr C had a nice getaway.
