Random Moments at the Seashore


The beach at Assateague Island, Virginia is really nice. It does get busy but it's still quieter than most Atlantic beaches. There is no boardwalk or development there except for small portable buildings and a nearby visitor center. You're in a national park here and must cross a wildlife refuge and a causeway to reach the town of Chincoteague.

You can also reach the island from Maryland south of Ocean City. There is a tent camping area on the Maryland portion of the island.

  13. Being at the beach anywhere would be fun but a less crowded one makes for a more relaxing time. Looks like you had a great time there.

  15. I enjoyed your posts on Assateague. My husband and I camp in a "Scamp" trailer and often speak of visiting the area. I enjoyed seeing the landscape and beaches through your posts.
