Assateague Island, Day 1

Eager to test out our new RV, we decided to head down to Assateague Island National Seashore for an extended weekend. We left home on Saturday night around 10PM, and arrived at Assateague Island at 2:45AM. It worked out well, since the kids slept for most of the trip.

Breakfast in the RV:

The kids had never been to the ocean before, and I had never been to the Atlantic, so it was a real treat to go take a look after breakfast:

We still have our kites from our honeymoon, so Trish gave it a whirl:

After lunch, we hopped on our bikes and rode out to the southern end of the road:

When we got to the end of the road, we encountered a herd of Asateague’s wild horses:

We then rode over to the bay side of the island, to the old ferry terminal:

That evening, M and I went back down to the beach. On our way over, we saw a horse walking through the campground:

Since it was February, we were one of only a few campers in the campground, which was nice.
