Can’t Stay Away Forever…

I am coming off a long, happy string of vacations, which has kept me away from the computer.  It’s been kind of nice.  On the last trip, my phone even broke (ok, it had some help) so I have gone for 2 WHOLE DAYS without a cell phone.  I should get a medal or something, right?

In summary:

OJAI.  LAVENDER. 
Jacki and I ran away to California for a girls weekend.  We sat by the pool, we got massages, we rubbed mud all over ourselves in a sweat room, and we ate well.  Best of all, everywhere we went, there were ice cold lavender water soaked towels.  And all the lavender was blooming, so the theme for the trip was definitely LAVENDER.  I keep calling out for cold towels, but no one is bringing them to me.  Spa Trip?  So Over.

WHITE MOUNTAINS.  NEW CAMPER!
We took our second trip in the new camper, and it was fun.  We did one of our favorite archery shoots – you ride the chair lift up the ski resort and hike down while shooting.  Andra got second, and everyone had fun.  We caught crayfish, fished, hiked and chilled in the new camper.  It is hardly like camping at all – just the thing.

NEWPORT.  SUN SEA SAND.
While I still take exception to having a beach that doesn’t maintain a constant temperature of about 85 degrees, Newport Oregon was lovely.  Mom rented a fantastic nautical house on the beach, and we did it all.  Fishing, Lighthouses, Tidepools, Aquarium, Clam Chowder, Clam Strips and Clam Chowder.  The girls are complaining about missing everyone already. 

We are going to stick around home for a while – the pool has turned green, and the pets are needy, so I guess we need a litte vacation from vacations.  Until the next vacation, anyway.

  1. The key is to get to know people and trust them to be who they are. Instead, we trust people to be who we want them to be – and when they’re not, we cry.

  2. It is only for the sake of those without hope that hope is given to us.
