Saturday Snapshot 10/22: Assateague Island - the Beach

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads. 

More photos from our recent trip to Maryland. We started on the Eastern Shore (on the Chesapeake Bay) at Janes Island State Park, then we moved our camper to Assateague Island National Seashore, on the Atlantic.

We enjoyed more kayaking among the salt marshes of the bay, with the wild horses all around (those pics next week!) and also the beautiful ocean and beach. My husband's not too fond of the ocean (he grew up in Oklahoma), but I love it. The last of these photos shows our blissful ignorance, having been off the  grid all week: we had no idea there was a HUGE storm coming that night! Heavy rain and winds up to 50 mph that lasted for over 12 hours...and we were right on the ocean! Quite an experience in our little pop-up camper. But before the storm hit, we enjoyed the beautiful beach:

Our campsite, tucked among the dunes at Assateague Island

I love the ocean!

A cloudy, overcast day but warm & pleasant

Day 2: we saw how rough the surf was...little did we know what was coming!

Blissfully ignorant of the coming storm!

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love the ocean, too! I've mostly seen the Pacific Ocean...but once, in the 1980s, I saw the Atlantic when I took a trip to Boston...and then did some sight-seeing. Thanks for sharing, and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

  2. I'm not a huge fan of the beach- but I love listening to the sounds of the Ocean.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow. So brave of you to withstand the storm there. I bet you felt like pioneers.
