Chincoteague

More LOVE on the Eastern Shore of Virginia -- this time on Chincoteague Island.  The island has lovely shops and restaurants, and very friendly people.  And, of course, views over the water are great!

In spite of it being November, roses were still blooming in some sheltered spots.  This lovely pink lady greeted us with her delicate beauty as we walked along the shop fronts in the quaint town of Chincoteague. 

We stopped in the museum for NASA's Wallops Flight Facility at Chincoteague.  This E-2 Navy plane was one of many circling the facility, practicing touch-and-go landings on the field below.

Larry was in training as well -- training to be an astronaut on the next space shuttle (not!)

I too opted for a bit of training while we were there.  I think my gear is pretty cool.  Our training was brief (very brief!), but fun.  There's just so much to do on the Eastern Shore!
