What Vacations Are Made of

IMG_6373IMG_6417

What are good vacations made of?

They are made of:

Early morning walks for donuts and coffee
World’s Best Donuts, Java Moose, Drury Lane Books, and Sven and Ole’s
Reading God’s word at the lake
Late breakfasts and early dinners
Getting lost in bookshops
Hiking trails along lakes and waterfalls
Devouring sinfully delicious custard
Cliff-jumping into the lake
Laughing at seagulls
Afternoon strolls along shoreline and shops
Keeping a sweatshirt handy for the unpredictably crisp lake air
Dockside Fish-n-chips
Finding outdoor seating, then being unexpectedly poured on
Lazy strolls to the lighthouse at sunset
Staying out as late as we please…or going to sleep as early as we please
Laughter
Incessantly snapping photos
Annoying my little brother
Family.

    I am not complaining about my vacation, Andre, but your time in sunny, beachy Rome (sunburn excluded) sounds divine!

    sorry I read your reply only today…

    indeed here in Rome it was a very very warm summer, like never before in ages i think!! 🙂

    nevertheless, I’d always wanted to visit inland USA, in spite of over-booked NYC and Miami and so on…

    so a little bit of envy is also in the part of mine… 😉

    again I’m sorry for my bad english…
