Beach Bike Rental

Hi neighbors!

How many of you have ever rented a cruiser and taken a ride along the beach?  We took a trip to St. Augustine Florida and took our own bikes, but I think I would LOVE to visit some other beaches too!  Maybe check out the Bike Rental Manhattan Beach!  I am not sure where I would like to try next, but we sure had a great time that week.

We stayed in the campground right on the beach.  Of course there were sand dunes between us and the beach, but they had roadway around to the boardwalk that you could then head out to the beach.  It was really nice to get up bright and early in the morning and bike down to the beach.  Often times we would park the bikes and wander the shoreline before moving on to another section.  We brought small bags with us to collect our finds.  We have even mounted some of the sand dollars, star fish and sea horses in displays.

Of course I think one of the highlights was one morning just as we reached the boardwalk someone spotted a pod of whales.  A gentleman there was kind enough to lend us his binoculars so everyone could get a good look.  We are really hoping to visit there again sometime.

Another thing we enjoyed while we were there was wandering through the old downtown area.   It was so much fun to visit the small shops.  We spent the whole afternoon there.  My husband purchased a fresh baked loaf of bread and they ate all of it before we left. Each of the children had a certain amount of money to buy a souvenir before leaving.

Of course we had to take evening walks on the beach too!  Just as the sun was going down!  It was perfect! We have visited a few other beaches on the east coast and I think we need to visit the west coast some time.    I am sure there are some great beaches there as well.

We generally like to visit during the off season.  There are not as many people and of course that really makes me happy.  One thing we like to do is get out first thing in the morning just as the sun is coming up.  It is so quiet and peaceful!

What beaches can you recommend?  Is there one you and your family have enjoyed visiting?  Leave a comment and let me know!  Thanks neighbors!  See you soon At the Fence!
