Destination: Assateague Island State Park (Maryland) campground where there are hot showers and flush toilets. Only one loop has electric and water hook ups. Since we were in a tent we chose a nonhook up site off the online registration. It ended up being a great site (E21). If you were camping in a group it'd be a great place. On one side of our site there were bushes enough to provide some shade and privacy and the other side opened up to 2 sites with a large area big enough to set up a volleyball net or other games. The playground and nature center are near as well as the bathroom (with plugs to charge your phone and water to do dishes). The roar of the beach can be heard all night as it's just a short walk over the dune.
Audio Book: Misty of Chincoteague and Sea Star by M. Henty. After reading Misty of Chincoteague with K in second grade (about 1998) we have always dreamed about going to Assateague Island to see the wild ponies.
