We then drove out to Assateague Island, where the wild ponies are. We walked a trail back to a viewing platform and as luck would have it….we saw two of the ponies. So very very cool! Our glimpse of the horses didn’t last long but that was okay; we saw them! Cross another item off the bucket list! (Along the way we thought of a few more items to add to the bucket list so we’re not gaining much on it!)
While driving to Assateague we drove through a NASA facility on Wallops Island. Had no idea this was here until we saw a huge radar array installation. Then passed by their visitor’s center with rockets on display outside. Just yesterday an Antares rocket was launched from here, testing the capability to supply the International Space Station from Wallops. Love learning about places like this!
