On Monday we left for a vacation at Assateague Island, and so far it’s been a ton of fun! If you know me, you’re probably guessing that I took, like, hundreds of pictures. And you’d be right. XD This is going to be one serious photo dump, guys.
I was trying to figure out how to organize the pictures, but I ended up pretty much just keeping them in the order they uploaded, and hoping that it’s not too jumbled. XD
I’ll start with some flowers. We’re staying in a cozy little Air B&B house with a moss lawn and gorgeous periwinkle hydrangeas in the front yard. I love how these photos turned out!
Some of our funniest adventures happened while driving. One time my littlest sister Carmen came up with… um, rather creative “Would You Rather” questions like, “Would you rather have all your hair pulled out or all your teeth?” and “Would you rather pour honey or glue over your head?” and lots more that were too gross to tell. We nearly died laughing but it was so GROSS. XD XD XD
I don’t pictures marshes as being exactly beautiful, but the marsh at the entrance to Assateague was really pretty.
If you’ve ever read Misty of Chincoteague, you probably already know that there are wild ponies roaming all over Assateague and Chincoteague Islands. It’s so funny because they walk right up to you and wander around the beaches and parking lots where people are, but they can still bite and kick like wild animals, so you’re not supposed to pet them.
I love this next picture! I spent a long time trying to get this to turn out. XD
When I was taking these footprint pictures I remembered a little poem/story thingy that I love. You can read it here.
My sister Megan took these pictures of me with my camera. The next one looks like my elbow is lighting up. XD
As you can see, the waves make me happy. 😛 🙂
Heh heh, I forgot to put sunscreen on my back that day and now it’s bright pink. YOUCH.
My parents taking a walk on the beach…
We barely found any shells the first day, but the second and third days we found a bunch!
I took sooooo many pictures of waves, but I just couldn’t help it – they’re so beautiful! We hardly ever take beach vacations so I have to take what I can get. XD
My brothers built a sandcastle every time we went to the beach, and the last one was QUITE impressive. But we’ll get to that in a moment… This is just the beginning of a moat or something.
Aww, isn’t that picture sweet? My little sister, Carmen, loved the waves too. 🙂
I don’t know what Megan is looking for… shells, maybe?
I got some pretty funny pictures of my brothers’ expressions while they were jumping waves. XD
This is one of my favorite pictures out of all of the beach photos! Just look at their smiles! 😀 Logan is the one with the black shirt and Jeff has the white shirt.
Hee hee, look at Megan’s hair!
I got some neat silhouette pictures of my parents on the beach.
I like the seagull silhouettes in this one.
Isn’t this so CUTE?!
I got some really neat pictures of two wild ponies meandering over the beach.
Oh my goodness, isn’t this hilarious? The horses were investigating these peoples’ bags. XD
Going down the boardwalk…
More flower pictures. ♥
Ahhh, I LOVE the next one!
Here’s the first sandcastle my brothers made. Neat, but nothing compared to their later ones. 🙂
This is the second sandcastle. (I took this picture quick with Megan’s camera, so of course it won’t be as good of quality as my wonderful camera would be. Heh heh. 😛 )
And this is their last one! It looks pretty similar to the second one, but it’s more impressive in real life. (Megan took these pictures.)
And back to the ocean… It looks like Carmen is Moana. XD
More wave action pictures!
His expression… XD XD XD
I like this one because the wave looks huge! (Actually they were pretty big.)
I got some more neat (but blurry) action photos of the wild ponies galloping.
And lastly we shall end with a sunset. These are the last beach pictures I got before my camera stopped working. *Sniff* I’m not exactly sure what’s wrong with it. It might be that the battery isn’t good anymore, or maybe it’s something else. It still takes pictures but the screen doesn’t work. We might be able to fix it when we get home, but for now… 😦 Any advice?
PHEW! You made it through almost 100 pictures! I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. 😀 Have you been to Assateague or Chincoteague? Do I even dare ask what your favorite picture was? Nah, there were too many. XD
Thank you so much for reading, my friends!
P. S. AHHH YAY! Hayley is doing another ATC trade! For all the details, check out her post here. You should totally go see – the past two ATC trades were SO much fun!
