I Want To Go To There: Assateague Island, Where Wild Ponies Sunbathe On The Beach

Wild Ponies Assateague Island

Well, I’ve just found a new place to add to my travel bucket list: Assateague Island, a gorgeous strip of land located off the coast of Maryland and Virginia. With beautiful white sand beaches, Assateague attracts a fair share of human tourists, but it’s also home to a large herd of wild ponies (I repeat: WILD PONIES), who spend their time prancing in the streets, taking leisurely swims in the ocean, and sunning themselves on the beach right alongside families building sandcastles and slathering on Coppertone. The photo above, for example, was taken on a crowded Saturday afternoon. I’m grabbing my swimsuit now. Who’s coming with me? [Neatorama]
