our schedules have been crazy, and looking at the calendar we couldn't find any time to get away to take a vacation this summer. the only span of time we had available was friday through sunday this past weekend, which worked out perfectly since sunday was our 11 year wedding anniversary.
we knew we couldn't travel too far for a weekend getaway, so we spent a lot of time trying to think of where we could go. ryan came up with the idea of taking a road trip to virginia (virginia is for lovers after all) to visit chincoteague island and assateague island.
ryan has been to chincoteague/assateague many times for family vacations, but i had never been there before. we were looking forward to escaping for a few days, seeing the ocean, and seeing the famous wild horses.
in chincoteague, we stayed right on the bay (with such a great view from our hotel room), ate lots of great seafood, and explored the historic district of the town. we drove to assateague each day to see the wildlife refuge, admire the wild horses, enjoy the beach, and see the famous lighthouse.
overall, it was a nice little anniversary weekend getaway and we're grateful that the weather mostly cooperated with us. a few photos that i snapped on my phone . . .
