Today we decided to rent a surrey (a pedal-powered vehicle, if you've never seen one) and ride from Balboa Pier to Newport Pier and back. We rented from Seaside Rentals and it was $25 for one hour. It didn't quite take us an hour to make the trip, and we had to take a few breaks. Pedaling is hard! The kids sat up front and got lots of attention for their general cuteness.
After, we played at the beach for a while, then grabbed lunch and went to the pool to rinse off. I lost one of my flipflops climbing the berm (the waves were huge). Lost and gone forever in the sand!
