A Cross Country Road Trip ~ June/July 2018 ~ Part 3

Next up: A back road drive from Huddleston Virginia to Chincoteague Island Virginia.

We decided that we really didn’t want to drive on the big highways, its so much more pleasant to take the road less traveled.  It took a little longer, but well worth it.

Not a real big island, but what a great place!  And why are we on Chincoteague you ask?  My husband’s good friend of many, many years has a home there and it just so happened that he was there while we were passing by, so we stopped for a while.

[I just had to get a souvenir]

Chincoteague is just a quaint tourist town.  Cute shops, restaurants and oh yeah, the Assateague Ponies are right across a small bridge.  I couldn’t get a good enough photo of the horses, but WOW!  If you go, make sure you’ve got your NPS America The Beautiful Pass!

And talking about the restaurants, we went to two places that were fabulous!  DH’s Old Friend had asked what we’d like to eat and in unison we both said, SEAFOOD!!   😀

Ray’s Shanty, just off Chincoteague Island was just plain delicious!

My husband ordered a Fried Oyster Platter and I had the Shanty Special 3 Item plate of Flounder, Steamed Shrimp and Clam Strips, Oh My GOSH!!!  With a nice cold local brew on tap along side, I was very happy.  Oh yeah, we did share by the way  😉

The other great restaurant that we went to was Bill’s Prime Seafood and Steaks right there on Chincoteague Island.

Both DH and I had a salad, they were huge; I ordered Crab cakes to DH’s 2 plates of raw Oysters on the half shell.
That was a real treat for us!

Old Friend made us dinner too!  Gorgeous Prime Porterhouse Steaks on the grill.

Well, my DH and his Old Friend started to get-a-yackin’ and, ummm, kinda forgot the grill … it was delicious!

We both had a really nice visit with his Old Friend, but we need to motor …
