I can feel it. Something dark and sinister is rearing it's ugly head; something that invades my dreams and controls my brain for extended periods of time and leaves me in a zombie-like mind controlled state of being...
It's time for a vacation, Witches.
I hope I can remember what to do on one. Heck, what am I talking about? I have NEVER had a vacation that a) wasn't with my parents, or b) wasn't to visit family somewhere. Seriously.
That's a damn travesty at my age is what it is. Mr. Wilson and I have a grand plan to run away with ourselves in January. There's just one small glitch.
We have yet to agree upon our destination.
I don't think either of us is dead set either for or against anywhere. There's a couple of places we are in complete agreement about, and in all fairness to J.C., we haven't had a really definitive talk yet about our choices. He may have his own. Here's a few of my picks, in no particular order.
Key West, FL.- I have been in Georgia for 11 years, and EVERY year I say (to no one in particular, because no one ever listens anyway) "I REALLY want to see Key West". Maybe this is the year to do it...but this is more than likely not the time to go. We are only going to have about 4 days, and thats an expensive trip once you factor in air fare. Maybe...Hemingway's home is a must see, if not this time then SOON. He's my hero. Hello.
New Orleans, LA.- This one is like # 3 on the "all star bucket list". You can see a virtual catalog of things to see and do here. Sheesh- it's NOLA. 'Nuff said.
Asheville, NC.- I miss the mountains. Southern Georgia is terrain challenged...(YAWN). It's flat here. Asheville is supposed to be gorgeous...I have heard that from virtually everyone who has visited there. It's probably worth the drive just to see the Biltmore House. I almost want to save that trip for next year in December with the boys so that they can see it all decorated for the holidays. It is said to be an incredible experience, and something they would remember always. Asheville would be a great destination for our family trip. There- thanks for listening while I talked myself out of that one...
St. Augustine, FL.- Another no-brainer. One of the most beautiful cities in the United States, within driving distance, and we are familiar with it, somewhat. My Dad lives there, and we have been a couple times this year. There's so much to see and do, and we are not even close to being bored with it...the B & B's are numerous, tons and tons of restaurants, tours, and nightlife. Definitely a strong possibility.
Fernandina Beach, FL.- Situated on Amelia Island, FL, Fernandina is close to us. We actually wandered down to the beach in a very random sort of way on Thanksgiving day while travelling to St. Augustine. It's wild, and lovely. Not at all like our Tybee. We made a promise to each other that we would come back soon. We'd probably get a great hotel rate in January.
And then there's always Charleston, S.C. You can never have too much Charleston...or see it all. We missed the Festival of Lights this year, so we are overdue for a Charleston trip.
On another note- I hope you all enjoy your holidays, however you choose to celebrate them. We'll be joining with close friends and family this week for some food and drink before Christmas day on Sunday. We get a reprieve from the workforce on the 26th, and I fully intend to exercise my right to do whatever I please. I hope each of you does exactly the same. Be good to yourselves, and the ones you love.
Until next time-
Peace in your heart
