My family and I rode our bikes and went to the beach every day! There were hummingbirds around the feeder morning and evening which we found breathtaking. The beach had very few people on it and was only a few houses down, which was very convenient for using the bathroom or getting lunch. We loved this place and plan to come back next year - can't wait - so relaxing!
