We've been together for a week at Cape May NJ for a long awaited family vacation. This vacation was in the planning stages since Christmas. I wanted to go back to Cape May where we used to take our little children on a yearly vacation. We have fond memories of foods, events, childhood accidents and wonderful beach moments.
This past week was perfect weather for all the beach sun lovers. I can't be in the sun in massive quantities because of my medications and my autoimmune disorder, but that doesn't stop me from loving the beach. I walked the beach daily.
We rented a house this year to accommodate our adult children, everyone had extra wiggle room in this house. The front porch was my favorite spot to read or knit or chitchat with whoever was with me. Of course a vacation can't be a vacation without a problem. This time I pulled a hamstring muscle (beach walking???) and that really hurt for more than three days.
I'm happy to report I feel mostly better. Getting old is for the birds!
I loved being together as a family.
I'm also ready to get back into eating regular food and I missed my dear sweet Frodo and Holly immensely. If you know me well, you know that I am a homebody through and through. I thrive on sameness and familiarity.
Whenever I travel I have a full appreciation for my coffeemaker and my bed.
