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!!
