Chincoteague! This And That…

Just a few random shots from our weekend trip.

Although our hotel rooms were on the third floor, when I awoke Sunday morning, I heard ducks quacking. You may recall that we have several here at home that love me visit me for food. I went to the balcony, and saw two female ducks with several ducklings.  One duckling had gone astray, and a mama duck was trying to corral him; that was the reason for all the quacking.

After breakfast at the hotel, we took a little walk down the street and passed Miss Molly’s Inn Bed and Breakfast. Isn’t it charming?

Many of you mentioned that you recall reading the children’s book Misty of Chincoteague. There’s a statue of Misty in downtown Chincoteague, and we had our pictures taken with her.

When Donna and I were little girls, reading the Misty book, visiting Chincoteague was something we never imagined we’d ever do.

Our weekend included a little walk on the beautiful beach at Chincoteague. I love Donna’s red hair! She was scanning the beach for sea glass when I took this picture.

See? I did manage to write a post about Chincoteague without a single picture of a (real) pony.

  4. Oh, I would love to stay a night or two at Miss Molly’s Inn. What a quaint B&B. In my next life, I’d like to own a B&B just like Miss Molly’s.
    What a great weekend getaway you had…thanks for sharing it with us. 🙂

  5. I know it was a special weekend since Donna could join you and JR. Love the statue of Misty. A great tribute to the ponies of Chincoteague!

  6. When I saw your previous post including Donna with her long red hair and beautiful smile, I thought “What? Dianna and MM met up with Wynonna Judd?” I know you felt right at home hearing mama duck corraling her little one early in the morning.

  7. Look at all those cute little ducklings. I can just imagine how busy they keep their Mama.
    I like the look of Miss Molly’s Inn B&B; it’s quite charming.
    I’ve never read ‘Misty of Chincoteague’. It must be a honey of a book for so many folks to have fond memories of it.
    You all look so happy posing in front of the statue.
    What a wonderful weekend to live a childhood dream. 🙂

  8. You know, I love tagging along on your adventures! So much fun!

  13. You, your husband, Donna, beautiful weather, and a great place to visit, who could ask for more!! The ducklings are precious and I love the statute of Misty. i don’t remember seeing that the last time we were there. Thanks for sharing this wonderful trip.

  14. I adore Chincoteague. We used to take our son there for a vacation every year. The pristine beaches and abundant wildlife, while mixed with the great food and bike riding, were perfect. I may just load up and head back there myself.

  15. That’s quite a bunch of ducklings! There are some quaint old homes in “downtown.”
