It's Sunday afternoon and we head for a walk along the boardwalk. During the week, retired citizenry frequent the path by the sea. Today, we share the area with weekend warriors, those work-a-day souls who hit the trails when they can eek out a few minutes for themselves.
Sometimes children accompany parents on the trail. The younger ones are eager to feed the birds and squirrels just as the seniors do all week. The animals appeal to the young and young at heart.
Groups of teens sometimes frequent the boardwalk as well. Rarely are parents included with this age group. Young athletes jog the route, headphones in place as they listen to music only they can hear. Others walk with friends, sharing gossip and stories, laughing and enjoying the time together.
Rarely do parents and teenagers walk or run together. Until Sunday. A father walked, a teenager rode a Hoverboard.
The father and son were deep in conversation as they moved along the boardwalk. What a unique way to spend quality time with your teen. Father-son time in the twenty-first century!
