A little B&B





Tom and I have just returned from a 2 day trip to Chincoteague Island, Virginia. It borders the National Seashore of Assateague Island, Virginia. The trip was taken as an early Anniversary Trip, as our actual anniversary is in November, but we preferred to take this particular trip in October, when the day temperatures were relatively warm and the leaves were colorful. On nearby Assateague Island in Virginia, you enter the Park into Maritime Forest where nature abounds, from Sika deer to stately White Egrets and as you wind through the forest you come to natural wetlands and then to the expansive sandy beach of Assateague, as energetic white foamy waves pound the surf. Very picturesque and and lovely place to get in touch with nature, God and self.

The photos above are of our Bed & Breakfast accommodation, The Channel Bass Inn, located on Church Street in Chincoteague, town proper. The photos are of the front of the inn, the parlor and tea room. The innkeepers, David and Barbara Weidenheft are from Chicago and Leeds, England, respectively. Barbara prepared delicious homemade scones served with strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream, delicious warm compote served with granola and mushroom/egg omelets. The breakfasts were a full course meal, and would fill you up for the day! David was a very low-key, accommodating host showing us around the property and suggesting places to dine. It was a relaxing destination and we left with a few more precious memories. Now, that I'm back home in Maryland and back to the routine...I hope to have a card or two to share tomorrow. Thanks for visiting!
