Ah, Chincoteague, we loved:
Peaceful drives both ways.
The giant orange full moon playing peek-a-boo with CC.
Spending every sunset at the same lounge drinking soda water with grenadine (girls) and beer (adults).
Being woken at 9 am by seagulls.
Walks on the windy beach.
Playing musical beds. We ended up with two full beds and a crib, and in 4 days of naps and nights of rest we mixed and mingled to form every possible pairing. Sabrina and CC slept in the crib together twice.
Eating seafood everyday, fried, raw, steamed.
Huge breakfasts. Crab omelets. Scrapple.
Seeing wild horses from very far away.
Running into Rachel Carlson on the walls of a nature center.
Bucketfuls of beach finds.
The wind in our hair at all times.
Swimming in a heated pool.
The decoy art show.
Meaningful mementos: miniature decoys, wooden postcards, beach treasure.
The Easter bunny finding us all the way out there.
Seeing the bay from our bedroom.
Funky little stores and galleries.
Great vintage children's books at the used bookstore.
The rockets left by NASA.
Daydreaming about moving here.
And we did not love:
