365-154 Wild Ponies
Assateague Island to see the wild ponies.
There are signs warning visitors to stay a bus length away from the ponies, but that's impossible when they wander over to a parking lot. (The signs say to get in your car, because the ponies may bite, but nobody can resist the chance for closer-ups of the ponies.)
None of the ponies seemed to pay attention to the people or cars, but they all darted off when they heard the garbage truck approach.
Fortunately, we saw four separate family groups, though none came as near to us as the first group did.
