Stay Fit on Vacation-Walk on the Beach!

It’s Tuesday on South Bethany Beach and I’m still staying fit while on vacation. I decided to post these blogs after reading about the “Hotel Hike” at the Aria Las Vegas. It’s a combination fitness hike and orientation to the hotel and all it has to offer. It’s all part of #TravelFit2014

This is a brand new place for our family vacation, so it’s a lot of fun to explore on foot. Today I took a two mile hike up the beach. I was surprised to find that there is a long stretch of undeveloped coastline between South Bethany and Fenwick Island. It kind of felt like I was the only one on the beach. It was nice to be out in the cool of the morning too.

After 20 minutes one way I headed through the dune path to highway one. Do you know what this is?

It’s a fire-control tower used during World War 2 to spot and shoot German surface ships along the Delaware coast. There are several still standing today. Thankfully, they were never used to fire on any ships. The Germans decided against a coastal assault.

There were also some beautiful native wildflowers growing nearby.

After I came back from the walk, I did another 12 Minute Athlete workout. This time it was all bodyweight. Now it’s time to hit the beach!
