This is Fun

Mine. It's all mine. 

John and I love to just get into the car and cruise.

Does this mean we're getting old? It's something my parents and grandparents used to do.

For whatever reason, as the years go by we enjoy it more and more: choosing an impromptu route, calling for a hotel reservation here or there, and just......driving and yakking. This go-around we yoinked Greg and Terese and took them with us.

Last night we checked into a hotel in a beautiful small town in eastern Idaho. After a delightful breakfast of Idaho potato pancakes (of course), this morning I spent a whole hour in the lovely hotel pool all by myself. I floated and talked to myself and alternated between sitting in the hot tub and drifting around the cool pool while John sat in a lounge chair sipping coffee.

Ahhhh. It's good.

Looking forward to taking off on impromptu trips in about 8 years when we retire. Love all the pictures, by the way.

Alone, alone, all, all alone,
Alone on a wide wide sea! That pool looks perfect, and having it to yourself sounds great, though another person might think you were talking to them.
Too hot today for official Starfish pants.
Amazing how you manage to blog on vacation.

So glad you had the opportunity and energy to just pick up and go! I am looking forward to being able to do the same thing again myself. And having a mate AND a best friend who can go with... The cherry on top.
