That's what we did Sunday on a biking/beach trip to Cape Charles, VA, which is about an hour drive from our home. We drove there transporting the bikes and then cycled along town streets, all of which have a 25 MPH speed limit, before going to the beach. East-west streets are named after Virginia statesmen and north-south streets are named after fruits.
Cape Charles, VA is the Eastern Shore's southern most town, located 10 miles north of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. It's a Victorian-era town included in the National Register of Historic Places. In years gone by, the town had a booming railroad and ferry business.
And sometimes gators too; this youngster was having a touch time managing this float . . .
Until his older brother came to cart off the beast.
When we visited, there were lots of family groups out for a day of fun in the sun — sunbathing, swimming, boating and playing. Coolers are allowed, but there's no food stands, amusement rides, or other vendors here, which make this beach a perfect getaway for many folks, including ourselves, to relax — under the boardwalk or hanging ten off the edge of a lounge chair.
Any special plans for this week's major holidays — Canada Day (July 1) and July 4th?
