Relaxing in a hammock swinging in the light ocean breeze: Every day, Boreas Bed and Breakfast Inn, Long Beach
Summer is jam packed with activity on the peninsula. Take part in the fun or simply relax and enjoy the view! Thanks to Susie and Bill at Boreas Bed and Breakfast Inn in Long Beach for sending me this short list of early summer activies. Their 5 room bed and breakfast has unobstructed views and access to the dunes, ocean and boardwalk. Enjoy their multi-course breakfast before heading out for the fun. Return after a long day of activity and languish in their private hot tub or nap in the hammock...your choice!
Also... Thanks to funbeach.com for sharing info and images. Long Beach has a great visitors bureau!
