Another Lighthouse Weekend!

Last Saturday, Chuck and I took off to Ocean City. We stopped to see the Fenwick Island Lighthouse. It was my first visit to a lighthouse at night to see the lights. I know, it's just a light that comes on and then goes off. But it is beautiful and so much history behind these lights. From there, we went to see the Life Saving Station on the Boardwalk in Ocean City.

For breakfast, we stopped at my favorite spot, The Bayside Skillet, for my strawberry crepes! This was my breakfast. If you walk out of there hungry, it's your own fault!

We went to Assateague to see the ponies. Ponies everywhere! Here's a picture of Momma and baby! We later walked to the beach to check out the shells, but they had been picked over! The Park Ranger told us after a storm, the beach is covered with shells.

From there, we drove to Chincoteague to see the Assateague Island Lighthouse. They are giving it a face lift. This was my "official" lighthouse climb. 198 steps to the top! Chuck took the pictures at the very top. I got as far as popping my head up just far enough to look around at the view. There wasn't enough room up there to walk for my comfort! Just alittle tight up there! When I got outside, the muscles in my legs got so tight, I had to sit for a few minutes! It was a beautiful, clear, warm spring day! On the way home, we made one more stop to take pictures of the Sandy Point Lighthouse, near the Bay Bridge. I took my crocheting with me, but didn't work a stitch. Just busy sightseeing and enjoying the day with Chuck. I uploaded all the pictures of our weekend into Picasa. (Click on the link on sidebar!) Hugs to all!
