$35 (nonmembers $40). Leaves 16th and I St., NW at 8:00 a.m. (no other pick-up point). End the summer with a relaxing day on this 31-mile long barrier island, the longest undeveloped beach on the Atlantic Coast. Activities include a stop at the Visitor Center, a hike along the beach and among the dunes, viewing (hopefully) some of the island’s wild ponies, and enjoying the expansive beach, where there’s a convenient bathhouse. By traveling on the middle day of the Labor Day weekend, we’ll miss the holiday traffic.
