We're back at Assateague Island NP for a long weekend of photography. Karen McLain has already been here for over a week as an "Artist-in-Residence". This is a prestigious appointment in which an artist, often a painter, is invited to spend a fortnight at a location and uses the opportunity to hone their artistic skill in a new environment and they often teach classes as well.
I joined Karen today after driving down the coast from the Hudson Valley in New York. We shot a few of the ponies, although the conditions were less than optimal with an intermittent light mist falling. We broke early and had a wonderful dinner at a restaurant in Salisbury, Maryland called "Brew River"- the specialty was crab cakes and they did the cakes justice. The oysters on the half-shell were amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed this dining experience.

Tomorrow we are up early and plan to have a full day in the park. Karen is teaching a class for the Assateague Island Alliance on Saturday so we will prepare for that- a local paper did a nice segment of Karen's residency here .
