The water is warm, clear, and flowing. It stretches underneath the board as the sound of gentle ripples bounce in your ear. Concentrating on your paddle strokes, you catch glimpses of crabs scratching along the floor of the bay, hiding from your unknown floating object. Looking up, the sun is bright as its light reaches across your entire view. To your right you see ponies lining the salty grass, grazing, gaining nourishment from the tranquility of their home on Assateague. Taking a deep breath, you gain your own energy and understand the value of a peaceful time spent on the water away from civilization. You are in the midst of what seems to be a day dream, but you realize, it feels not like a dream, but rather, more like a memory.

The longer you stay on the water, the more vivid the memory becomes. You feel your childhood resurfacing as the enjoyment of a simple time spent outside sends out a beacon, pleading with you, letting you know, this is where you belong. Right here, right now. And you smile.

Sounds pretty good, right? Well…it is.

Assateague Island is a great place to visit during your time in Ocean City. And honestly, there are few things that can make your visit better than just sitting at the beach and taking the day in.

I take that back. There is at least one thing: a paddleboard.

Instead of remaining landlocked, hop on a board, get a paddle in your hands, and head out into the water with nothing but a smile and a guide to show you around. You won’t regret it.
