rush to relax

Last week one day we rushed off for one night to relax.

A quick look online for a deal . . .

one free afternoon and evening on the calendar . ..

and a rapidly packed swimsuit suitcase swimsuit.

It drizzled nearly the whole time we were there . . .

but we were wet anyways. .

so we didn't care a speck.


The drive there and back was as pretty as a calendar.

The hotel was decorated with lovely trees everywhere we walked.

The next morning we went and sat in the hot pool once more ..

and then enjoyed a lovely brunch.

It pays to sometimes check for Internet deals.

I'm happy to be home for Christmas .. .

but I sure enjoyed tasting what it might be like to have Christmas away.

All for now. . .

  3. Oh what a wonderful idea. Our daughter and family always take their vacation the week after Christmas. His work will only allow him to go during the winder. I makes for a wonderful break in the winter and helps zero on the important things. Blessings

  4. It's nice to escape once in a while and let someone else take care of things for you.
