We left Virginia Beach early, we had a lot to do that day.. but even when in a hurry you still need breakfast. So we grabbed egg and cheese sandwiches on the go from Java Surf.. it looked like a fun hangout place.. books, instruments and board games lined the shelves and the menu was written on surf boards..
Pictures just do not do it justice.
Waiting for us on Chincoteague Island was a boat. Daisy's Cruises. I can not express just how perfect this trip was. The tour was of seven people including the captain and tour guide Tom. He does not take out large groups, he likes the two hour tours to be intimate and comfortable.
The weather was gorgeous, the sun shinning the wind blowing. The boat took us to Assateague Island where wild ponies live. Kayaking seemed like a much more up close and personal experience with the ponies, maybe when D is older.
D assisted in driving the boat and now that he had touched a sheep he was up for touching just about everything else including running after the adorable dog (the first mate) and even a blowfish!
During a game of peekaboo/running around the benches D decided it would be fun to crawl through this little opening between the backs of two benches! He had fun, he crawled through decades of bacteria and things I can not even imagine but I thank god he crawled through it and did not decide to stop mid way for a little rest. Eew.
From Cape May we drove to Ocean City.. which I will share with you in my coming post.. a lot more more firsts for D and even a few firsts for M and I..
To all my fellow America readers.. Happy Fourth of July..
