If you kayak from Chincoteague to Assateague Island on the Atlantic shore or Virginia you might get lucky enough to enjoy the sight of wild Spanish ponies. You’ll also have great views of willets, relaxing in the marsh. We watched these shorebirds hanging out in their flock, feeding on insects and marine worms. There were also plenty of oyster beds for their snacking. Wildlife is good for the soul. We should all be so free to live in the moment.
