Assateague National Seashore

Happy Thursday,  I wish everyone a happy day!


I am sharing some photos from our visit to Delaware & Maryland shores. Ocean City and I have some photos from Assateague Island National Seashore, Maryland. We made a few visits to the park during our trip to the beach. 

The first photo is the sunset from Ocean City Maryland inlet.

Not sure if these are Ring-billed Gulls, Ocean City, Md?

This may be a flock of Snow Buntings, we never did see them on the ground or close up. We just watched their flight pattern.

My Saturday's critter post has more of my wild pony photos.

I am thankful for our national parks and national seashores.
I am thankful to walk on the beach, even on a cloudy day.
I am thankful for all your visits and comments. 


Thank you Michelle for hosting. Thankful Thursday

Hello,

Beautiful photos and view! It's very nice to see beaches and not snow.
I wish you a wonderful day!

David Gascoigne said...

It’s really great that you were there at a time when it was so secluded. A crowded beach would have made the experience quite different.

Hi Eileen, Thank you so much for sharing these excellent photos! The very first one, sunset from Ocean City Maryland inlet, should win an award. My second favorite, from Assateague Island National Seashore, is the one right under "Make peace of mind your priority." I love a setting like that with the bench just waiting for one to sit down and enjoy the tranquility of the view. A perfect caption for that photo!Have a happy day and take care! John

There are so many photos in this post that simply move my heart to stunned awe. Those beaches, so big; the bench; the gulls with the waves behind them. Your fabulous eye has found a soul place, I think, for you are certainly capturing its soul.

I remember my Dad going down to the pony auction on Chincoteague. It was a benefit auction for the local fire department.

While HE never bid on a horse, a friend did and I got to ride her once she was saddle broke. She was a fuzzy, fuzzy girl in the winter.

nice day at the beach

Angie said...

That first shot is stunning!

What a wonderful place to spend some time. Beautiful photos of the area.

Beautiful shots Eileen!

Irene said...

Hi Eileen. Wonderful captures. I love the dunes and fences, the gulls too. They all bring back momories of good old times, spent on Holiday at my aunts house in OC. Her illness made it impossible for her to live there all alone, so she has moved up to PA to get closer to her sons. "The Dune House" might get new owners soon, but OC is still there waiting for me :)

Happy weekend ahead!

I enjoyed these photos so much...I have a feeling I'll never see that part of the world, so I enjoyed them all the more. That sand, I think, is what I've always liked best...

Wonderful photos Eileen. I especially like the last one - where you can see miles of unspoiled beach. Our beaches down here are crowded and dirty. No fun!
