Home Sweet Vacation
So the hubs is on vacation this week and we decided to stay here. We figured we could try the whole "staycation" thing that seems to be so popular. It's really easy to do here since we feel like we are on working vacation all the time anyway. People spend a lot of money to come here on real vacations after all.
I think we would feel differently about taking a stay-at-home vacation if we lived somewhere like Salinas, Kansas (no offense to the people of Salinas). Although, while driving through Kansas once, Nick and I had some car trouble and got towed into the town of Goodland. We saw the coolest thing we could have seen there, too. It was a giant reproduction of Van Gogh's "Sunflowers." Really. It was awesome. I know I have a picture on one of my discs somewhere. Just can't find it. That was the neatest. It really made Kansas cool. You can follow this link to see someone else's picture of said painting.
Anyway... back to our plans. We are going to enjoy ourselves the way we always do: lots of rum, sun, sand, and ocean. We may throw in a few more days hanging with the turtles (which we do a lot) and maybe try some really touristy things and go parasailing or something. Not a bad vacation in the end though. I really do live in paradise.
