I was up early this morning and was treated to a beautiful sunrise in Chincoteague. No ponies to see but lots of geese, ducks and other waterfowl.
In cape Hatteras I caught the ferry to Ocracoke Island. I was disappointed to find the only ponies on Ocracoke fenced in a bare lot. The village of Ocracoke is lovely and I would think a great getaway during the winter months. I will attach a photo of the lighthouse there. I caught the last ferry of the day to Cedar Island. As I drove onto the main land I was treated to a full moon rising over the ocean and a sun set over the marshes. This is a beautiful part of the world and I highly recommend visiting this time of year to avoid the crowds.
