John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Friday's Fotos - A Beachside Bike Ride is a Great Way to Unwind

Friday's Fotos - A Beachside Bike Ride is a Great Way to Unwind

Every evening I get some exercise and ride my Mongoose bike beachside. I had my trusty Canon 8mp point and shoot with me this time and thought I would share these photos with my friends on AR. I usually stop at "Jump's" to throw a game of horseshoes on the way back and have a cold brew with friends. It's a great way to unwind.

It's a wonderful time of the day to walk along the beach and breathe in the ocean air.

Ahhh...I remember traveling the Cape Canaveral area when I sold Sraples and nails for ABC Staple Company in the '80's. Some of my customers were Kennedy Space Center, Disney and Epcot and when they were building Universal over in Orlando...many a trip was on the Beeline to your area!!

Mike - It's a great area. It sounds like you have fond memories. The theme parks and cruise lines are still going strong.

Oh! My dad used to love to play horse shoes. He was so very good at it. I think ge got a lot of practice during the depression. Thanks for giving me an opportunity to remember him. Nice pics, too.

John, I would love to have a stroll on a Florida beach. The weather in the North East has been cool, cold or wet, for months.

Hi Cheryl - I'm glad my post helped you to remember your Dad. I just lost mine in January and the memories are precious.

Donna - That's no fun for a "Bluenose" girl :-) Nova Scotia is such a beautiful Province in the sunshine. The rain is good for the well though! EH?

Your second photo is so inviting, John! Makes me want to visit Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Thanks Keith - Now if we can keep the hurricanes out to sea again this season, we'll be laughing!

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 8 years ago

WOW John this looks like a fun time, and the bike ride would have to be early before the heat!

VB ;o)

Posted by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz, Las Vegas Henderson Homes for Sale (Realty ONE Group) over 8 years ago

Hi VB - Actually, I ride in the evening to avoid the heat. We've had some record breaking temps lately.

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 8 years ago

The water looks so inviting! I'd like to be beached there!

Great beach shots, John. I've been to Cape Canaveral as well as Coco Beach and others in the vicinity. What a great place to live! Lucky you.

Sussie - Ha Ha, the water IS inviting, now that the jellyfish are gone ;-]

Thanks Ted - You get around. How about those Canucks!? Everyone in Canada was hoping this was the year but the Bruins wanted it more.

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 8 years ago

Okay, stop it! stop it! stop it!....Even though we are enjoying perfect summer days here in old Canada, you are making us drool..........your night sounds more than perfect!

Al and Peggy - Enjoy your perfect Ontario weather. The heat and humidity in Florida is really high right now. That's why I go for a bike ride in the evening.

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 8 years ago

John  I love to walk on the beach, but ours is 4 hours aay

John,

I just want to jump inside those photographs, grab that bike and take a ride to the beach. What a great post and what a great day for the beach!

Patricia - Almost every day is a great day for the beach. I'll have a bike warmed up for when you come down :-)

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 8 years ago

I really need to buckle down and buy a bike.  I've been threatening to do it for a couple of years now.  I live just a couple blocks from the American River Bikeway, and it is insane for me to not get better access to it.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) over 8 years ago

I also meant to mention, that I like the looks of the seat on your bike.  Nice and wide, so you can distribute mass and weight without feeling like the darned thing is going to find its way up your backbone and compress your brain:-)

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) over 8 years ago

Hi Myrl - I always like your comments. I guess you have to be younger to sit on one of those skinny seats. They're not for me! I know you swim but you should take advantage of that bikeway. I'll bet there are some great photo ops along the trail.
