B and I slept in until 8:00 Saturday morning--unheard of around here. After a quick breakfast, I was ready for a walk. We decided to walk across the bridge to Assateague and see what we could get into. But first, we visited with the Chincoteague ponies in the corral outside our hotel. Did any of you read Misty of Chincoteague when you were younger (or more recently)? These are some of the famous Chincoteague ponies.
Assateague and the lighthouse in the distance.
As we continued our walk we saw the lighthouse was open until that afternoon. Having climbed the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse (and let me say holy smokes what a climb!), I was anxious to get inside the Assateague Lighthouse (anyone else out there as fascinated by lighthouses as I am?). I've been to the Assateague light numerous times, and this was my first chance to get inside.
Fibonacci sequence. (Yes, I really am that big a nerd.)
After lunch we took a quick tour of the tourist shops (I fell in love with a rather upscale one--shocker, I know), after which I managed to badger poor Brien into renting bikes. Whee!!

3. It's hot, but the humidity has been low which is lovely.
4. A fun trip to TJ's where I saw a former student.
5. Lil looks like a little fish. I swear, two weeks in and the girl is actually starting to swim!
