It was a cold October day, but the driver warmed it up with humor! Loved the scenery! The little girl behind in the seat behind us really added more fun with her laughing and awing!

Had a great time. The view from the top of the dunes was spectacular. It was a chilly day, but fine with a blanket. Will definitely be coming back with our kids!
