It's a "fast" rabbit!
We made the trip out to Chincoteague, VA or "chink-o-teague" as the locals say to recruit students at their tiny little school.
C. Island is a little over 2 hrs. from my house, so I decided to make the most of it!
I stayed here! Miss Molly's B & B in Captain Jack's room.
Chincoteague, VA is home of the famed pony swim. Wild ponies live on this island and every summer they herd them across the sound to a different pasture. People come from far and wide to witness this event... I think they raise a lot of money for the fire department by doing it. Pretty cool! While at Miss Molly's - I met the a sweet lady, Jennifer Ward, and her daughter Josie (13). We met on the back porch of the B&B and had a fun visit over tea. I found out that Jennifer, a Physicians assistant by trade, writes books on the side. Below is a picture of her first book- it's a heartwarming story about a puppy dreaming of a forever home! I must say it was pretty inspiring talking to her. Here's this woman with a full time job, 2 kids, husband, life, and she squeezes in a book! And... she gets published on her first try. I could tell that she was a very real person, after all she and her daughter were on a little "fly by the seat of your pants" adventure of there own. I can't wait to do that with our little one.
(click on the picture to buy the book- I did!)
Oh and the shopping/antiquing at Chincoteague is awesome!
I'm not going with a bunny theme, but this was just too cool to pass up.
Anyway, so the dresser didn't fit, right? So I posted it on Craigs list for $125 and sold it less than 24hrs. later for $100. The guy who bought it... will be using it in The Elizabeth Inn, a new B&B on the Elizabeth river.
What a great ending!
