Actual event dates: March 8 thru 13, 2009

With some major events over and a long planned week off from work for Pam, we left for a serendipity week long trip that would have as its final destination, Washington, DC, with stops along the way.  It was a pretty Sunday as we took the back roads to Cape May, planning to enjoy dinner and a visit with dear friend, Janice, who has retired to that very scenic New Jersey area.  Janice always is into some interesting adventures in her own new life there, so we had a lot of catching up to do before jumping onto the Cape May/Lewes ferry (just minutes from her home) and enjoying the evening sun setting ride across the Delaware River.

The next morning we sat on the boardwalk at Rehoboth DE,

Driving down the coastline we came across some surfers sailing, being pulled along (and UP into the air) by huge sails, dashing over the waves and just putting on a great show for us as the wind blew through our hair.

they did tricks when the wind and sail lifted them many feet up into the sky like this one... much to our delight!

Down the shore a bit we followed lunch in Ocean Beach MD with a side trip to Assateague Island National Seashore, home to the famous wild horses that roam the 48,000 acres of dunes and beaches along the coastline of MD and VA.  Pam (and I) we so thrilled to find that the horses were so accessible as you can see by the photos she took here…

…and then there was this one standing on the roadway that I described as “being on greeting duty that day” since he was blocking the road and so close to our car…

It was so amazing to be able to walk up so close to the small herd of these wild horses in their beautiful natural environment of the waterways and dunes."greeter" wild horse welcomed us to Assateague Island
