After staying with family in PA, and then northern Delaware for a couple days,
we drove out along the barrier islands through Ocean City to Assateague Island in MD for a couple days.
Driving through Ocean City, MD, we stopped for flu shots. You know, we worry a lot with all the people and germs we run into these days at work and school. While the shots were getting set up, Elliot & I walked around taking pictures.
OC looks like it would be overrun with tippy college students many times of the year. Now though it looks great to us, pretty empty and mostly closed up.
At the bottom of Ocean City, there is an inlet that opened up in the 30's after a storm, isolating Assateague Island. There were private houses and some new development on Assateague up through the early 60's, serviced by ferry. After a storm in 1962 wiped out most of the initial early 60's houses, landowners sold out and the national seashore was formed. By '65, the bridge to Assateague was built, which now serves the state and national parks there.

We rolled out early, on the road by 7:30 am including freshening the tanks. Back onto the mainland to Wallops & Chincoteague for a morning, and down across the Chesapeake bridge-tunnel to Virginia Beach.
