I'm going on an adventure!

Kayaking to the Petroglyph Island, spending Halloween (and one earthquake) on a pirate ship, mushing picturesquely down a park trail until your lead dogs go "SQUIRREL!"...

All of these are possible with a little imagination and less money. Most of these photos & tales are from the Chesapeake Bay region, east coast USA.

As a local outfitter says: go outside and play!

I don't post NSFW there, but I reblog other posts and some may contain language unsuitable for polite company.

wild ponies graze in the marsh off the road to the beach, Assateague Island

this herd, in Virginia, is owned by the Chincoteague Fire Company, which holds the traditional roundup each year at the end of July… it dates back centuries to colonists who kept livestock on the island (to avoid taxes) and rounded it up when needed…
