Chincoteague Weekend

Steve took me away for the weekend for our anniversary; we spent it on Chincoteague Island, off of the Eastern Shore. The weather was unbelievably beautiful, unseasonably so.
This was the view from our room:
Main Street; ever read the book, Misty of Chincoteague? This is the setting for it.
There was a yarn store, but the owners were away for the weekend, unfortunately.

A wild pony, near the entrance to Assateague National Park, which is accessible by a bridge.


Assateague Island Lighthouse:
My hand knit socks, which were actually unnecessary, given the temperature.

Six years and still happy. Cowl made by Meredith.


Assateague beach.


An oyster lunch. Amazing.

I love the colors at this time of year.

Sunset from our room.



Kayakers on the water in Onancock, Virginia.

Gorgeous yellow leaves.


Sunset over the Chesapeake Bay, at the end of our weekend.

Such a lovely trip.
