I just got done taking some much needed vacation time with my daughter and grand daughter at Tybee Island, GA. We had perfect weather.
Vacation never seems to last long enough. One of the main things though is to make sure you enjoy every moment. We celebrated each day with bike rides and beach time, good food and, of course, Leopold’s famous ice cream.
Covid has definitely brought about different ways for us to vacation together. It seems that we are happier doing the simple things in life. We took bike rides around the neighborhood and Ms. Catherine is getting so good. When they were here in March, she couldn’t even ride without training wheels and now she doesn’t need any help at all.
Her mom and I both love the outdoors so I loved this vacation. We did eat out a couple of times at places that had out door seating – North Beach Grill and the Crab Shack. Yummy on both counts.
We did a little shopping at Tanger outlet and wore masks. Life is definitely different than it was before Covid 19.
Food is one thing that we all love. My kids don’t do keto so we compromised and I did some of their food and they did some of mine – like Keto Cauliflower Mac and Cheese. Oh my it is so good. We like the Buffalo Chicken Dip from Publix and I just ate mine with celery instead of crackers or pretzels.
Don’t get me wrong, I cheated – had some watermelon and honey dew melon since those are two of Catherines’ favorites. But it was vacation and I’m not worried about what I ate. We exercised each day and wore ourselves out playing in the ocean and riding bikes. Life is too short to stress out about food for a week.
My suggestion to you is play things by ear, enjoy the outdoors and don’t stress about a vacation. Enjoy life to the fullest each day. Be grateful for your loved ones and your friends and all you have in life. Vacation doesn’t have to be a hotel away from home, it can be a staycation. Fortunately I live fairly close to the beach so our staycation was wonderful.
I am so thankful that travel restrictions were lifted so my girls could come see me. Have a blessed week.
