Staying Fit on Vacation-Bike Ride to Fenwick Island

Sunday in South Bethany Beach and today is my rest day. Instead of a workout under the beach house, hubby Bob and I wanted to explore on our bikes. We headed to Fenwick Island to see the lighthouse. It was about a four and a half mile ride from our beach house. The guy we rented our bikes from told us bikes are the way to go in this area and he is right. It’s so much fun to take off and ride around finding new places and things. Highway 1 has a bike path for miles.

We rode into the town of Fenwick Island. It is a quaint little seaside town. We decided we would like to come back in September and stay there for a weekend. The lighthouse was neat to see and a pretty cool photo op.
That’s me with the bikes in front of the lighthouse.

¬†With the help of the “around me” app and google maps, we found Lizzie’s Bistro. It was a very sweet little place to eat. We each had an omelette with some homemade rye toast. The owner even came out and talked to us about his place. That’s hubby Bob posing in the dining room.

On the ride back, we stopped to get some info on the eco-tours at Coastal Kayak. That’s a new fitness adventure for us on Tuesday. Stay tuned! #TravelFit2014

Stay Fit on Vacation-Ride a Bike!

This is my third blog post brought to you by the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas who are sponsoring #TravelFit2014. The folks there have inspired me to blog about how we are staying fit while on our vacation to South Bethany Beach, Delaware.

On Wednesday afternoon, hubby Bob drove down and joined us here on South Bethany Beach. He brought a bunch more exercise equipment (kettlebells, a yoga mat, and his TRX) so now we can do a few more moves in our circuits and we rented bikes to use for next week. There is a bike path all the way up and down Highway 1. We want to ride to shops and restaurants. The bike rental place brought us brand new bikes and they are nice!

This morning we did a twenty minute full body circuit and then headed out on our bikes for Bethany Beach. When we got there we ate at the Penguin Diner for breakfast. I had the “Trainer”, which was egg whites, spinach, mushrooms, a whole wheat pancake and a little dish of yogurt. Yummy and healthy but so much food! I went light for lunch.

We came back and went to the beach. We have had the most beautiful weather so far. I hope it continues for our next week. I didn’t actually take part in this activity, but it looked like a workout. Dan planned out an octopus to make in the sand and spent about an hour shoveling sand to make it. I would have never thought of shoveling the sand away to make the legs. It must be his engineer’s mind that came up with it.

Tomorrow we plan to ride to Fenwick Island. I’ll take lots of pictures!
