Having read the book Misty of Chincoteague as a child, I always wanted to see the wild ponies at Chincoteague,VA. Since this is only 2 hours from VA Beach, it was the perfect time to visit.
The ponies were beautiful, but we underestimated the size and quantity of mosquitoes we would encounter on our hike to see them.
The Wildlife Refuge was amazing. There are eagles nesting there and you can see into the nest via tv camera.
Unfortunately, we arrived at the lighthouse to late to walk up to the top.
