BERLIN, MD’s BIG BACKYARD: Assateague
Face it, one of the best things to love about Berlin, MD is not exactly in Berlin……the beach. Whether you love the activity and excitement of the boardwalk and night life in Ocean City or the ponies and natural beauty of Assateague, the beach calls to most of us. Lucky for us, the beach is our backyard!
Now, in the depths of winter, just knowing that the beach is so close makes me happy. At this time of year, Berlin takes a little rest from the many events and there are few tourists around, making this an even more special time at the beach. Yes, it’s cold, but still beautiful. The sun still rises and sets, the ponies still wonder around and the moon on a cool, clear night is beautiful. Walking along the beach, or by the usually warmer bay, you can begin to imagine what it was like for the first inhabitants and feel the joy of the wide, open space.
Sure, I’m excited to feel the sand between my toes and take a nice paddle in the kayak, but I like this big backyard in the winter too!
