We Are Going To Assateague Island Home Of The Wild Ponies

Wood E. Wagon and I have planned our first shooting trip and destination. Assateague Island in Maryland. I had wanted to do this when I first got Wood E and it didn't work out. My plan now is to be there a week camping in the Assateague Island National Park.

As of now I will be leaving Tampa Bay, Florida Area and working my way north. Do you have any suggestions for me to spot and experience or photograph along the way?

This is all I know so far!

The Best Time to go is Mid May to October. I have to be back in Tampa by October so I was thinking of June or July. Depending on other events and festivals that I have planned to attend.

This is from Assateague Island National Park web site:
Assateague Island is managed by three official park agencies. Assateague Island National Seashore is cared for and managed by the National Park Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Department of Natural Resources. Visitors to the park in Virginia enjoy the beach plus find opportunities for countless breathtaking experiences and adventures at the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge (established in 1943).

I have always like horses - I hope camping on the beach where they run wild they will get buck wild and I can grab some pretty cool photos. 

The only thing is I can;t see where the horses are playing - happy - I don't see that in any of the pictures. Either way I still wanna go even if it's just to camp on the beach! 
I will continue my research and keep you updated!
