It was a cold weekend, but we survived the camping trip, mostly. That is, we spent one night on the cold, hard sand, and we had five meals cooked on a fire on the beach.

The wildlife mostly cooperated, with regular viewings of deer, dolphins, and "wild" horses. The big advantage to being so late in the year was the absence of biting flies. However, the cold did not keep the loud neighbors away.

The state park is closed for the season, so we camped on the Assateague Island National Seashore side. That meant no showers, but there were portable toilets.
