No boating for us this weekend, we drove to Chincoteague Island, VA instead. But since you CAN boat there, I figured I'd write about our experience. Buddy and I were the lucky bidders at a silent auction on a house in Chincoteague. We headed out early Friday morning for the 3 1/2 hour trip. It's an easy, pretty drive through the flat countryside. A left turn at T's Corner means you're on approach and once you get past the daunting/fascinating Wallops Island you begin the long, beautiful, marshy approach in to Chincoteague and over the new bridge and there you are on Main Street. A charming downtown populated with a couple of restaurants, some shops and bookstores and B&B's. We stayed in the Jester Wallace House on Jester Street. A truly charming beach home with 3 1/2 bedrooms, 2 baths and well equipped with everything you need (minus a few modern amenities like TV/internet). (The owner is accommodating and friendly and to her credit tried to have the cable hooked up before we came, but it's not quite season there yet and she wasn't able to get it done).
