while casually walking along the beach and collecting shells ~ and asking mommy if we could please take the horseshoe crab skeleton home? ummm, no! ~ we spotted horses in the distance. seriously, this is why you come to chincoteague. it was so neat to be able to walk right up and take pictures.
i loved the misty of chincoteague books and lots of other horse books when growing up. each night during the trip, we read a few chapters from my misty book that i have kept to pass down to them.
