Bikes and boardwalk

We try to use our bikes to get around at the beach as much as possible. In this era of sustainability, we get to be righteous about reducing our carbon footprint, but the truth is we would be riding anyway for fun. This year we rented a bike for Maria so she had something just right, and she landed a wicked cool beach cruiser:

Anna has started riding on her own this year, but for longer journeys she still hops on the Tagalong. I took some pictures of her over my shoulder while riding, which explains the dubious photo quality. Notice how she is leaning to try and get into the frame of my clumsy shot… such a sweet girl:

One evening we hit the boardwalk in Ocean City, and this is always one of my favorite parts of the trip. I just love getting a whole mess of family out on the boards for an evening together.

We went on some rides, including some scary thing that swings high up in the sky and spins around at the same time. Maria and her cousin thought that was pretty fun:

There were also some tamer options available for the faint of heart:

And of course, no evening on the boards would be complete without some tattoos:
