A Weekend Resort
Taking down my luggage from the attic space was my first action towards a weekend getaway. I simply made plans at a beach resort for three days and have not looked back. I engineered this small vacation so I would not have to curse myself all weekend long while looking at the four rooms of my house.
I simply called ahead and booked a room for one at a very quaint coastal resort. I have been here before so I am not expecting any surprises. The pink painted hotel and beachfront property say all there is to say about the hotel and its amenities.
My luggage will be packed with shorts and pants and long sleeved shirt. You see it is quite cool at night along the waterfront and I want to be prepared. I envision myself sitting on the outside deck with drink in hand as I toast myself a smart vacation.
Boone knows I am going and no one will be the wiser when I return. It is simply an outing for my benefit. I do this a couple of times per year and so am not totally unfamiliar with the scenery. Not to mention that a brief car ride along the coast would be pleasant.
The sandy beaches and umbrellas and curiously colored hotels and motels all make for a lovely destination. All you have to do as the tourist is look the part and find some activities to make your stay worthwhile. There is a small museum dedicated to beachfront mementos that I like to frequent. There is a pub and grill with excellent drinks. The walk down to the beach is brisk and rewarding.
There isn't anything about the entire experience that I would trade away. I never have a complaint about food or service or anything of the like. It's just me, my computer, and the wind and waves. It has been some five or six months since I was last here and when I returned home I was better for the experience. I know that each time I come here I become that much more acquainted with the ways here. The mountains are a couple of hours away by car and while I have yet to make the trip I know that soon I will make it there.
So with my luggage very neatly packed away in the trunk I will make this trip knowing that everything will be in order when I return and that I will be that much closer to making a return trip.
