Chincoteague Ponies and Assateague Island, Virginia

Chincoteague Island is one of those places that has been high on our list for some time.  I found out, after much confusion, that the Chincoteague Ponies are actually on nearby Assateague Island.

We drove to the area and spent time exploring.  I honestly am not sure exactly where we were at times.  I know we crossed a lot of water at various points.  As we drove near the lighthouse, we did see the legendary wild ponies  in the distance.  Even though they appeared small and far away, this was very exciting.

We found several nice little shops.  We all agreed that this area felt more like New England than the Virginia we knew.

After exploring on our own, we did do a cruise with the Daisey's Island Cruises.  We were happy about this choice.

The guys at Daisey's told us about the ponies, how they are tracked, managed, and provided for.  Though they are technically wild, the Chincoteague ponies are monitored closely.  In a lot of ways, the ponies kind of live the life.
