Celebrating the 4th on Chincoteague Island

Howdy people!  Kinda of a delayed post, but I wanted to share my time at Chincoteague Island with y’all.  If you aren’t familiar with the Virginia coast, Chincoteague is located in the far NorthEast section of Virginia’s Eastern Shore.  Whenever I told local Virginians that we were going there for the 4th, I got the same response each time…”why, there isn’t that much to do there”….and you know what??  They were right!  But that is exactly what the bf and I wanted, a relaxing, calm beach town where we could relax, bask in the sun and read a few books.

We stay at a beautiful Bed&Breakfast, that had so much history and charm, it was a great pick!  The innkeepers Bob and Carole, were such great hosts.  Bob was so knowledgeable in all that was Chincoteague, and Carole could whip up some hearty breakfast biscuits!

See below for such snaps of our long weekend retreat!

Fried pickles are my absolute favorite!  I’ve never tried them before moving down south, but I am hooked.  Carole’s delicious breakfast.  Nothing like some champs and world cup coverage on the iPhone!

Beautiful cranes on our bike ride.  Nothing says America like Mexican beer.  The underwhelming fireworks display.

My rusted bike, almost crashed into oncoming traffic several times.  Mister Whippy is amazing, had it numerous times on our trip. The Watson House lit up at night.

Summer is going by too fast.  Hope everyone is enjoying every minute!
