    Great page... I visited Assateague about 6-7 years ago, it was a nice place. But 15 mosquitoes? It's more like you'd find 1500... they were crazy...

    I remember those sparsely populated beaches. That was our reason to go. Do the ponies still walk the beach? So much better than the busy resorts in bigger towns.

    Very good information! Yes, those mosquitos can be a major bother when you combine woods with swamps!

    We on the Left Coast, sometimes forget you have beaches over there :-) The barrier islands along the Atlanitic are special. Mosquitos certainly like them!

    Yeah well, Taiwan mosquitos roll on the floor laughing at the mere thought of Kodiak and Florida and Assateque mosquitoes... Nice page, I always wanted to see these two islands....
