Here are some random images I shot while exploring the beaches at Assateague Island National Seashore. I primarily used my EM5 and iPhone6, which ever was at hand. I stayed for 3 nights and rarely saw anyone else on the beaches. Days were reasonably warm in the mid to high 60’s, nights were cool in the low 50’s.
Sand dunes along the stretch of Rte 12 between Ocracoke and Point Beach. A mad dash to catch the last ferry to Hattares, then on to Assateague. I loved this stretch of road.
I was lucky to snag an oceanfront campsite. I had no reservations and wasn’t planning on spending more than one night on my trek by to Boston. When I got settled into the campsite, saw the gorgeous beaches, lack of people, I went back and reserved a few more nights. How could I not!
A quick stop at a beach along Rte 12 for lunch. Stormy skies, some drizzle at times.
Always time for a quick selfie. Late afternoon at Assateague Island National Seashore.
Along the beach at Assateague. A few other campers can be seen in the upper right.
Assateague Island National Seashore. It was spring with hardly any visitors to be seen. I had miles of beach to myself for most of my stay.
Ripples in the sand. Assateague.
I love when the sun has just set, and the pastel colors appear.
The view from the Van at my campsite. Just steps to the beach just over the sand dune.
