Assateague's great. The beaches are a whole lot less crowded than Ocean City, but that's close enough nearby that you can still get your fill of shore-town stupidity if you want.

My nine-year-old daughter went batshiat when she saw the ponies last summer, but as it turns out the highlight of her trip was when she found a nice big dead horseshoe crab.

Madison_Smiled: Man, look at my childhood all up in here.

Read the books, owned the figures, always wanted to go to Assateague to see the ponies swim. My Breyer collection was passed on to another horse-crazy little girl. I hope she played with them and loved them as much as I did. My Marguerite Henry books are in a box in my parents' attic; anyone who dared to suggest I give those away would have been courting a vicious shin-kicking.

/house-sitting for my parents soon
//guess what's coming back with me


Sounds like someday we need an Assateague Fark party.  There are 5 group campsites on the National side of the park right next to each other that hold 25 tents each and are steps away from the ocean, and Beach bonfire permits are fairly easy to obtain...hmmmm

digitalrain: Lydia_C: I loved Misty as a kid. Had a Breyer's model of Misty that I started to wear the finish from, I played with it much. I also remember Sea Star, Orphan of Chincoteague.

I had a book that was all of those stories. I read it til the spine cracked. Still love those
stories.

They were right up there w/ the James Herriot novels for me.


I still have all my Marguerite Henry books, the Black Stallion books, and the Thoroughbred/Saddle Club ones. Makes a great lending library for my 4-H kids!

lillian27: "No, but I knew a hooker once named Minnie Mazola."

/obscure?


If Blues Brothers quotes are obscure on Fark, I have sadly misjudged this crowd.

Amazingly enough, I do, from 35ish years ago, along with the Black Stallion series and Alfred Hitchcock's The Three Investigators.
