52 Projects is an adventure in discovery. Every week, for 52 weeks, do something. Something you’ve never done before. Something you’ve always wanted to do. Something that scares you. Something that inspires you. Something that inspires others. Something that tickles your fancy. Something that caught your eye. Something that just popped into your head. It can be big. It can be small. It can be whatever you want it to be. Find out how doing something can lead you to discover things about yourself, your world, your God. Then, come here on Sundays and share it with others. I'll write about mine here, you write about yours on your blog, then use the tool in my post to link to your something. Please feel free to jump in and participate anytime throughout the year!

Week 38: wild horses couldn't drag me away....a trip to Asseteague Island



This weekend we traveled to the eastern shores of Maryland where Breen rode in the Seagull Century bike ride; a 100 mile ride originating at Salisbury University. We couldn't have asked for more perfect, gorgeous weather. I was also excited about this weekend road trip because I knew that Asseteague Island, home of the island where wild horses run free, was only a short half hour ride from the University. I have always wanted to go there.

We arrived at 8am at the University where Breen met up with a coworker who was doing the ride with him.


To my utter delight, his friend brought his fiance along and we hit it off immediately. As soon as we wished our men good luck, she and I hit the road to Asseteague Island.

Asseteague Island is beautiful and it really is true that the horses are everywhere. Since the island is their home, you have to drive carefully as they feel they have the rights to road:

On the Maryland side of the island, camping is open all year long. I couldn't believe how many tent campers were there. The camp sites are right on the beach and just a hop, skip and a jump away from the water. Fishing is a big sport on the beach. There are also trails to explore all over the island.




While the men were riding all day, the girls sat on the beach for a long while taking it all in. I definitely want to go back there with Breen to do some Fall camping and backpacking around the island. What a gorgeous day was had by all!

We ended the day by eating dinner at one of my all-time favorite crab restaurants, Lazy Susan's in Lewes, Delaware.




What did you do this week?

  2. It sounds like a fairy tale... I've got to look that island up. And the pictures are gorgeous. I'd love to see this place, so thanks for transporting me there with your Project.

  3. Oh, I came back to look at your pictures and have to say: those clams look so tasty. I'd like a big pile of lemons and a dark beer, maybe a clam chowder if it's cold out. Very nice...
