Chincoteague Channel at Dusk


On our first evening at Chincoteague, I was disappointed to find that the seafood restaurant that I remembered from previous trips had closed. Was it a victim of Hurricane Sandy? I wouldn't be surprised, since that part of town had suffered flooding.

While driving along Main Street looking for it, we stopped to take a few pictures of the sunset.

Chincoteague Island is a special place, quieter than some resort towns but offering plenty of outdoor activities. It's a barrier island off the coast of Virginia that's protected from the Atlantic Ocean by another barrier island, Assateague.

  9. Sorry that your restaurant was closed. I hate it when places we enjoyed eating at close up too.
    Your sunset shots though are quite lovely.

  10. It's a lovely place to visit. Nice photos. I saw three rehabilitated eagles were released there this past week. I had hoped to make it up there for that.

  13. Me too, when I went to Long Beach Island (NJ) for our vacation, I wanted to have dinner at one of my favorite restaurants. I was sad to learn that it was closed. No doubt it was too costly for the owner to deal with the damage after Sandy. LBI suffered significant damage during Sandy. Your photos are really pretty.
