A fantastic place to vacation, Assateague, has become a family favorite. I love the vastness of the ocean and, in this case, the apparent peacefulness of what appears to be a glassy, quiet sea. On this particular trip, however, looks are deceiving. This was a day before we were hit by a tropical storm. I remember that day vividly. We huddled in the tent all day as gale force winds struck without letup. I sat in the tent literally trying to hold the side against which the wind was blowing up, or it would have flattened the tent. Finally the winds let up as the storm moved out to sea, but that was one experience which we will never forget. Our vacation was not spoiled though because we had four out of five days of beautiful weather sandwiching the storm. The nice part about that storm was that we had almost no mosquitoes the whole time we were there. To see more watery wednesday photos please go to WATERY WEDNESDAY and join us and share your photos.
