Frivolous Friday

Well the word frivolous means superficial, and not serious in behavior, well that is me today, so think I will post some silly stuff, I am always serious, and today I want to be frivolous. Giggles, so hang with me.
I will show you some really silly and beautiful things. These photos were taken on Assateague, and Chincoteague, VA we spent a year there in 1995 it was gorgeous.
Here is the place where the horses were, we did not see any that day, but as you can see they did leave us a little something.

Next is looking out from the Lighthouse on Assateague, we had to climb 170 stairs to get to the top. It was such a beautiful site and so worth the work to get there.
This one is the beautiful light house, a member in our church had the keys, he was in the Coast Guard and able to show us around inside, a rarity, most never get to see the inside. My dear husband collects Light Houses and it was extra special for him too, we had a wonderful time on this spectacular island.
Next is the Ducks crossing the road on the island, they love it.
Now these photos would not be complete without showing the beautiful Ocean there, and the wonderful beach area,
Now last but not least is the view we had from our front porch, we lived right on main street in Chincoteague, and this is overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, such beauty these eyes have seen, God has blessed us and our ministry above and over anything I ever expected, the tales I could tell, the places we did  go just on faith, sometimes never knowing where we would stay or what we would do, and God always provided such wonderful people to care for us, and to give us the love from him, all my thanks goes to my lord and all that his hand has provided.  Have a very blessed weekend, and hope you enjoyed my travels, God bless you real good. ♥

I hope one day to visit Assateague and Chincoteaque. I would love to see the horses as they cross the water in July. I like lighthouses. I don't collect them, per se, although people have given me lighthouse decor because I like lighthouses. I do try and include a visit to a lighthouse whenever we visit somewhere that a lighthouse may be found.

This brings back memories of grade school when my teacher read "Misty of Chincoteague" to us. I'd love to visit there sometime. Looks like a beautiful place, Barbara.
