    Assateague Island is a beautiful beautiful place! Where else can you lounge on a white sand beach with wild horses and find the most gorgeous bright purple sea shells? This was a very memorable family trip from my childhood

Assateague Island, VA ~ Home of the Chincoteague ponies. The island is a peaceful, windswept sanctuary to many species of wildlife, none more famous than the wild pony population. According to legend, these shaggy, sturdy animals survived the shipwreck of a Spanish galleon in the 1600s and then swam ashore to Assateague. One of my favorite vacation destinations!!
