On Vacation

Daddy D and I will be leaving soon for a vacation in Virginia. This is a vacation that we have been postponing for a few years. You maybe asking yourself, "Why in the world would these folks postpone vacations for years?" Or maybe, you might say, "Why in Sam Hill would these guys put-off vacations at all?" Or maybe, You might say... Oops sorry, I am getting carried away with another train of thought.

Daddy D and I do go on day trips and weekend excursions as well occasional educational conferences, but sometimes the big trip alludes us. In fact one vacation , we actually postponed for 30 some years. In 1970, we vacationed in the Upper Penisula of Michigan. That year, at Whitefish Point, which is on the shores of the deep blue Lake Superior, we vowed to return within in a few years. The few years ended up being 35 years later. Do not be sad for us. When we did return, we had a wonderful time and stayed in Bed and Breakfast Lighthouse Quarters right on Whitefish Point. Here are a few pictures of the trip to the UP, then I need to pack. We are going to Virginia, and then on to the Outer Banks Swampwitch of Anecdotes, Antidotes, and Anodes is hosting the next Fun Monday for June 25th. Here is her challenge : Post pictures of your BOOK shelves (other shelves are welcome too: toy shelves, collection shelves, any shelves) AND post pictures of the inside of your garage or any place where you lock the door when company comes so they can't see the clutter. Rule: Don't clean it up first. If this intrigues you, visit Swampy, and sign-up for the next Fun Monday.

Ode to vacations. They are wonderful aren't they? Well, make sure you have a good time for me. I love the east coast.

Have fun in Virginia and the Outer Banks (I hope you get a chance to eat at Mako Mikes, yum!).

Also be careful on Route 158 between VA and the Outer Banks because there have been multiple fatal wrecks there in the past couple of weeks.

Vacations are great any time you take them. We have taken many with the girls, but will soon be "on our own." EEK.

Have a great vacation! Allyson and I went to Cape Cod last year and we are both ready to go back. I guess we should have the baby first. ;)

Wow! I love the picture of the driftwood on the beach! We don't get much where I live in England but had loads on the beach near where I grew up in Canada. Hope you are having a wonderful time.

Remember to watch out for the ghost of Blackbeard when you are on the Outerbanks. He was killed right off of Ocracoke, you know.
