Assateague Island Beach

One of our favorite places in Maryland is Assateague Island Beach.  Assateague Island is a nationally protected 37 mile barrier island in Maryland.  Besides having a beautiful beach with lots of seashells, the island is home to a herd of wild ponies.

It was the perfect place to spend our last day together after our LoveFeast Family Beach Week in Ocean City.

The beach is perfect for a serene walk collecting shells.

The waves and beach are great for boogie boarding.

The occasional wild pony is part of the surroundings.
