Best Beach in the U.S.

Thank you all so much for your sweet birthday wishes yesterday. Celebrating a birthday with so many kind gestures of friendship is the best gift. Thanks to each and every one of you who sent me a birthday message. It means so much to me.

Over the 4th of July holiday, I visited Chincoteague, Virginia that has just been named the number one beach in the United States. It is SO beautiful there. The charming town is full of beautiful victorian homes and delicious ice cream parlors (watch for my reviews of those later this week!) Clams and crabs are plentiful and my minnies had a blast looking for them. In about 10 minutes, they found almost a dozen clams without really looking! It's easy to "catch" your dinner at Chincoteague. Alexia was brave enough to hold a huge crab, but I'm not that brave.

The beach is calm and beautiful. I was surprised by the large amount of "good" shells that we found. Natalia could have spent every waking moment at the beach!!


The weather was so perfect and every night we enjoyed the cool ocean air.


The sunsets at Chincoteague are among the most beautiful I have ever seen.

  7. Dear Bethany,
    Happy belated birthday! I've been out of town for a 4th of July family reunion and finally back now into blogging world. It looks like you had a wonderful birthday trip with your girls! I've never been to Chinc but always wanted to see what it's like, so you'll have to pass along where you stayed. Happy birthday again!
    xoxo,
    Melanie

  11. I have been to Chincoteague...did you see any wild ponies?...they are mostly on Assateague and swim over at the end of July to be auctioned..I remember reading Misty of Chincoteague as a kid. We sailed to Assateague when I was a kid from NJ...before there was a bridge to it...there were tons of conch shells...pristine! thanks for the memories!Jennifer
