I am super excited to finally be on vacation. I cannot tell you how much I need this break from the humdrum my ife has been these past several months. I really NEED this break!
A couple of friends and I started planning this trip months ago and it is the only motivation I’ve had to keep smiling and dealing with all the jerks at my job. We were able to rent a timeshare that is right on the beach. I get up in the morning and make a cup of coffee and take it out to sit and watch the sunrise. I can’t get enough of seeing the Ocean at all times of day. After the sunrise, I go back in for a bit of breakfast and then head to the beach again.
We all go out to eat dinner together and usually catch some live entertainment along the board walk. I love all the fresh seafood options that are available here. I am ordering all kinds of fish platters and enjoying every bite of oysters and shellfish, too.
We have enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub at the condo. It is kinda fun to just show up and meet a variety of other vacationers who are there relaxing. Almost everyone has been happy, friendly and chatting. Sometimes it gets too hot to just sit at the pool, so I come in to the hot tub. I know it sounds weird to leave the hot pool and choose the hot tub instead, but that’s the truth!
And then, you guessed it, I’m back on the beach to watch the sunset. It’s been beautiful and I’ve got some lovely photos I will enjoy looking at during the winter months. When we get home we will start planning our next vacation!
Cindy and Bobby, my two close friends since high school, who just recently moved out to Colorado, are now having to send for her aging mother to come out there to them to live until they can find the perfect Assisted Living in the Denver area to move her into. This apparently wasn’t expected for another 5 years or so. They wanted to get settled into their new home and jobs and get a few things squared away before having her relocate all of her shit out and up there in the Mile High City in the beautiful state of Colorado. Life always seems to get in the way of the best thought out plans for folks.
I don’t think that I would want to go anywhere near Colorado these days. What with all the fucking wild fires that devastated so many people and their homes and businesses. And then of course, least we forget the cocksucker that went into the movie theater and went bat ass crazy with his guns and shot up the place, killing and wounding dozens of innocent folks that were just trying to watch a fucking movie. Now that is one fucked up dude there. I wonder how long it is going to take for him to be tried and convicted and sent away, or even if he will be sent away. Most likely to a mental ward instead of in prison, sigh…..
Let’s rock and roll. I mean it. I gotta get outta this place. I need a road trip. I need a break. I need to get out of Dodge. Who’s with me? Hit me up!
I am so fucking glad that March Madness is almost over. I am tired of hearing about basketball. Who cares about guys running back and forth on a stupid court anyway? It is almost as boring as baseball. The only thing to remotely recommend it, is nights out with my friends, but then I am stuck constantly watching this shit. I will be so very happy once it is over and we can get together somewhere that we can dance and have fun. I want to go somewhere that has a DJ and loud music.
I don’t complain to my friends about it, but they know I don’t really like basketball. There are only a few sports that I will watch. I really prefer dancing if I am going out and spending money. It’s kind of hard to dance in a sports bar during a game. I think that when March Madness is over, I am going to suggest we all go downtown one night and hit a few clubs. That will sufficiently take care of my craving for a dance floor. I know that my friends will go, since I stuck with them through this crazy sports season. I might have to go buy myself a new outfit for the occasion as well.
OMFG I love seafood. There is nothing better than this shit right here. I am eating left overs from the night before. We went to this awesome seafood restaurant and I absolutely loved it. I ordered Shrimp Alfredo with Linguine. It came with a side of garlic bread and we ordered New England Clam Chowder for our appetizer. Mike had the special of the day, which was sword fish. He let me taste it and it was divine. I don’t usually go for fish as per se, even though I love seafood. I like mostly shellfish. Didn’t matter though, because the sword fish was great.
I guess fish just depends on the restaurant and how they cook it. I will definitely be going back to that place to eat. I will have to ask Mike the name of the restaurant as I cannot for the life of me, remember it. The servings were large enough that I obviously was able to bring home my left overs. I am so glad about that. I love having left overs later one from a great restaurant. I think I will take my mom there for Mothers Day. It is coming up quickly and I want to take her somewhere special.
