After we left Destination #2, we had another day long drive to reach Destination #3. By this time, I was feeling very well acquainted with my friend Janice (Yes, I named the voice in my TomTom GPS.). In fact, I was so well acquainted with her that I found myself talking to her. That meant it was time to stop for coffee.
Janice got the kids and I to our destination in about 8 hours, including stops. It wasn’t a bad trip, and we actually did a lot of backtracking from Destination #2 towards Destination #1. We were glad to get out of the car, and the kids were ready to play. I mean, I don’t blame them. This was our backyard.
My mom and dad met us there, and we spent a few days laughing, relaxing, and eating. There were also many, many hours spent with my glittery toenails in the sand.
Each night, I went to sleep with the moon shining in my window and the sound of the ocean waves rolling in. And each morning, I woke to one of the most beautiful sights in the world.
We never “co-slept” with either of our kids when they were babies, but Emma always seemed to find her way into my bed while we were on our road trip. I loved every minute of it (although she is such a bed hog for such a tiny human!).
Of course, we couldn’t leave without having breakfast at one of our favorite joints. This “little” beach town has grown over the 35 years I’ve been visiting, but it’s always refreshing to know that as some things change, some things remain the same.
For those of you who have been here, I know that last picture totally gave it away.
Any guesses as to where I was? Remember, there will be an opportunity for you to win a HUGE Bag of Swag at the end of my Destination reveals. I promise, you aren’t going to want to miss your chance to enter to win it!
