We drove down to Chincateague, VA, and the Assateague National Seashore today, to see how the Virginia-portion of the park had fared post Sandy. To put it bluntly, the park is a bit of a mess. Trees are uprooted, roads and parking lots along the beach are gone, and large sections of the park are closed. But, for the most part, nature is just plugging along. We saw a few Egrets and Great Blue Herons, a good sized squadron of Snow Geese, a variety of ducks and shore birds, a goodly selection of dumb gulls -- but no ponies or deer.
The day was a bit dreary and cold and rainy, but that didn't stop me from taking a few photographs.
