When I was a kid three activities ruled my summers: Root Beer popsicles, great books, and riding my bike as fast as possible. I’m a little afraid to try Root Beer popcicles today for fear they won’t live up to my memories but I always have a book to read and after a long hiatus I can proudly say I haven’t forgotten how to ride a bike.
Lopez is the most bike-friendly island in the San Juan’s and even though I don’t have a bike of my own my sister-in-law arranged for a loaner so I wouldn’t be left out of the fun of a big family ride along the beach. We filled our backpacks with snacks and followed the twisty island roads for an early evening adventure. The kids explored the beach skipping rocks and climbing logs while the adults relaxed in the sun until it was time to pedal our way back to the BBQ and dinner.
With a view like this I didn’t want the ride to end. 🙂
