I kicked off our first full day at the beach with a 4 mile sunrise run. I ran around the campground for the first mile and was treated to a cloudy sunrise.
Then I headed out to run on the path along the main road for the remainder of my run. This was my fourth day in a row running and I felt pretty good. It certainly helps that I’m at sea level, about 2500 feet lower than usual. However, it was 69 degrees with 90% humidity and I was definitely feeling it towards the end of my run.
The rest of our first full day was spent on the beach. I spent most of my time just relaxing and reading a good book and played in the ocean a bit with Barry. There was a strong current so I got in a bit of cross training swimming against the current to get back to where our umbrella was located. Quite the workout. After a full day on the beach, my dad fixed some delicious hot wings for dinner and we played corn hole.

Hank and Scout are enjoying the air conditioning. They like going for short walks and exploring (sniffing) a bit, but are happiest lounging in the camper.
At least they travel really well. The two of them slept the majority of the 6-ish hour drive here on Sunday.
Today was a cross training day so I recruited Barry and Dad for a morning bike ride. We rode down to a little beach town area where a bunch of condos, hotels, and little shops are located.
I am hoping to trick someone into playing Frisbee with me on the beach later today!
Have you been to the ocean before? Do you like swimming in the ocean?
I like to swim in it until I get freaked out about sharks, then I get out.
Have you ever played cornhole?
What non-traditional forms of cross training do you like to do when you’re away from your normal routine?
