I survived another night sleeping in a rest stop but not before being woken up and startled by a thunderous crash next to my car in the middle of the night. It was the ice settling in the cooler just next to me. Note: don’t listen to podcasts of roadside serial killers before sleeping in a rest area next to murderous looking woods.
Still convinced that Charles Manson followers lurk nearby, I was up super early, so I headed out to Assateague Island for my first lighthouse of the day. I was told the wild ponies were quite a walk through the mosquito-infested woods, so I wimped out and just photographed the Light, and left the ponies to lurk unseen.
Driving through Ocean City, Maryland, today was the first and the last time I’ll ever head through that town in the summer. It was like Vegas on super-red-neck-steroids. Not. A. Fan.
But, I did find this lovely lighthouse in a trailer park.
As the day heated up my bug bites really started to itch so I ended up driving down the highway while scratching my mosquito bites on my legs with a long stick. I multitask.
