It’s been a few days since Marty and I got back from Destin so it’s time for a recap!
As I stated in my last post, we spent most of our trip reading, lounging by the pool and/or beach, and eating fresh seafood! We enjoyed some amazing shrimp, fish and crab (and one DELICIOUS Bloody Mary – one of my favorites!)
This trip was actually our first beach vacation together! I’ll be honest, I’ve never really enjoyed beach vacations but there was something different about it this time; I really enjoyed myself! Not even the feeling of sticky sunscreen and sand covered skin could bring me down!
Unfortunately, there was one thing that put a damper on the trip…
Our vacation was actually supposed to be a couples getaway (with another couple from our church); however, on our first full day, the other husband received news that his dad had had a stroke. 😦 He and his wife ended up flying back to Ohio a few hours after receiving the news. Marty and I were bummed for many reasons (1. We felt awful for the dad 2. We felt awful for our friends that had to leave 3. We were looking forward to a couples vacation) but decided that we needed to make the best of our trip.
I think we did a pretty good job after that first initial day of sadness.
While I miss the feeling of being on vacation, I’m definitely glad to be back in Ohio 🙂
Which type of vacation do you prefer: beach, ‘outdoor-sy’ or ‘big city’?
