Born in Virginia Rebecca Frazier grew up listening to tales of a wild and magical place called the Eastern Shore of Virginia, where wild ponies roamed pristine shores. She tells us that after reading ‘Misty of Chincoteague,’ her imagination ran wild about these fantastical barrier islands just 20 miles over the horizon. She had never made it to the Eastern Shore, despite many hopes and attempts to visit. Rebecca returned to the U.S. from Southeast Asia in 2007. Still she would likely never go to these barrier islands, and thus wrote ‘Virginia Coastline’ as a tribute to the wild ponies and her imagination.
Her friend and videographer Alison Goedde, pushed her to discover this mythical place in real life, in real-time, after all these years.
The reality [of Virginia Shores] was better than my imagination. Thank you for listening and watching – Rebecca Frazier.

The mythical nature of Virginia’s Eastern Shore, known for free-roaming wild horses and untouched natural ocean vistas provides a backdrop for the story.
