Steve and I boarded a boat in Reedville Va. and took about a 2 hr. ride to the Charming Island.
After we got there we took a 20 minute tour of the island and listed to some history in a golf cart. We rented bikes to take around the island and beach.
There is a nice little beach on Tangier Island. Last time I was there we practically had it to ourselves..
Never have I seen such beautiful sunsets.
Gorgeous little island that sits in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, and is only accessable by boat or plane.. The size is about 1 mile wide and 3 miles long. Tangier was visited by Capt. John Smith in 1608, and in the year 1620, settlers arrived from Cornwall, England. I did pay attention to the locals converse with one another in their dialect which I understood to be Elizabethan English. I really couldn't understand to much of what they were saying.
There is one school for kindergarden through 12th grade, a post office and two grocery stores. I remember the vegetables being so fresh and prices reasonable.
We saw about 3 vehicles on the island, no need for them really. People are riding around in their golf cart, or bike. I saw locals pull their golf carts up to this little landing at their property where they would charge the batteries.
Good food at several restaurants on the island. A couple gft shops. There is a museum that explains the island life and Tangiers role in the War of 1812.
Tangier Island is "dry", you can bring alcohol for personal use, but use discretion.
school for K thru 12
I believe this is where we were getting ready to cross the bridge on our bikes, which we were told was the highest point on the island.
