Still in the midst of my Maui vacation I had to report a Cameleon sighting at the beach today. I’ve been watching all the parents at the beach, studying every piece of equipment they have chosen to travel with. I’ve seen some unusual sites…from a straight-jacket-like infant life jacket to a Sun Tent the size of a hotel room.
The stroller choices are always the most interesting. I’ve seen Joggers, Umbrellas, 3 wheelers, and 4 wheelers. But today I saw the best beach buggy yet…the Bugaboo Cameleon ( I do have a love affair with anything from Bugaboo but this was exceptional). This was the first time I witnessed a mom casually strolling down the very sandy beach with her baby in a black bugaboo cameleon. She pushed the buggy effortlessly through the sand.
She had obviously reversed the stroller so the larger all-terrain wheels were pointed forward, but the stroller seemed to be so maneuverable. There was a 3 wheeled jogging stroller parked about 3 umbrellas down from her that I am sure had to be dragged backwards down the sand or carried from the stairs.
Did I mention that we were on the beach at the Four Seasons Maui? I had to remind myself of that when I saw the matching JJ Cole accessories come flying out of the Bugaboo Stroller one after the other.
