Virginia’s Eastern Shore: Ponies, hamlets and inlets | Life

In April, the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company on Virginia’s Eastern Shore celebrated with much hoopla the birth of a new pony named Summer. The foal is a descendant of Misty, a real pony made famous by Marguerite Henry’s 1947 book, Misty of Chincoteague, and likely the Eastern Shore’s most famous notable (apologies to Virginia Governor Ralph Northam). Misty died in 1972, but her lineage persists in the 150 ponies that live wild and free on Chincoteague Island.

Watching wild ponies is a popular attraction on this 70-mile finger of land flanked by the Atlantic Ocean to the east (“seaside”) and the Chesapeake Bay (“bayside”) to the west. Besides the ponies, there are many picturesque nooks, inlets, byways, and little hamlets with names like Wachapreague, Pungoteague, Onancock, Machipongo, Oyster, Nassawadox, and Horsey. And there’s exquisite nature to explore.

Virginia’s Eastern Shore is the southern part of the Delmarva peninsula, which stretches
