The Ponies of Chincoteague Island, Virginia

For as long as I can remember, Misty of Chincoteague has been one of my favorite books.  I was so excited, even as a grown adult, when we planned a trip to Chincoteague Island to see the wild ponies.




And the not so wild ponies of Chincoteague Island:

    I loved that book too! I grew up in Va. and I love that part of Va. Next weekend we’re headed to the Outer Banks, and I’m looking forward to seeing some of the wild ponies. I also get really excited over that stuff! Great pictures 🙂

    I have to admit, seeing these ponies is a travel dream of mine (ever since reading Misty!). Thanks for posting about it so I could live vicariously!
