Title: Anyone from the Eastern Shore??
Post by: amy-thernstrom on May 02, 2017, 06:22 PM
I am writing a kid's novel about a girl who lives in a coastal town. I've spent summer vacations in Chincoteague, but I have a few questions about what it's like to actually LIVE in a place like that....  I am especially interested in what it's like to grow up there: What kind of stuff do kids do? What kind of boats do they use? At what age are they allowed to take a boat out by themselves? That kind of information. Please let me know if you know someone who would be willing to exchange e-mails or maybe chat on the phone for a few minutes (I promise not to take up more than 20 minutes of their time!)  Thank you!!
