After breakfast we rented bikes because the kids had been psyched up to ride them. This was a bit of an ill-fated experiment so I'll let Stevie's expression in the photo say it all...
Moving on in our day, we spent about an hour on the beach catching some rays and splashing around before heading over to the other side of the thin peninsula for our jet ski reservation. Not one of us has ever tried this sport before and we all loved it (except London who was not so thrilled). Stevie had a blast driving it, and for the sake of time and safety, I let him take all of us out.

|Big kids' turn!|
|He looks a little cold, doesn't he?|

|What can I say about this photo???|
|Heading down to the beach.|
The walk took us down a fairly deserted beach, past a river inlet and across rocks and through the surf to another totally deserted beach. I would have kept going, but we were unsure if the tide was going out or coming in and we didn't want to get stranded. It was very beautiful, though.
After the coastal walk, we headed back across the island and returned in time for a little R&R on the beach, dinner on the BBQ and a family movie night.
