After the long drive in the morning we arrived and checked into the Lighthouse Inn. We had some concerns prior to our arrival, but because we had the Dog with us it was one of the few choices on the island as far as hotels.
We were pleasently surprised by the room, the Inn is renovating and in our room there was a brand new bedroom set and carpetting, Wonderful Four Post California King.
The room had a mini-fridge, microwave and was nice for the price.
After arriving and settling the dog in we proceeded to Seastar Cafe for our picnic carry out. They have a wonderful selection of food especially for vegetarians.
Be aware however they only accept cash, although there is an ATM right across the street at the gas station.
We then headed to the Assateague National Seashore was very cold that day, although the weekend before season opens is the way to go if you want to avoid the crowds.
The Seashore does not allow pets of any kind in the park (even in your car) and has strict rules on feeding the birds.
We walked the wildlife loop and saw the famous Assateague Ponies, a wide display of birdlife and even a muskrat or two.
Afterwards we journeyed to the Pony Center, which was a waste. Essentially a giant gift shop with a few penned in ponies.
Lastly we ate at the Island Family Restaurant which has the most delicious prime rib I have had in ages. Although the ambiance leaves something to be desired.
