I have been telling Kev that I want to go on a vacation, sort of like the Maine one, with lots of down time, perhaps sitting on a porch looking at sailboats while drinking coffee and knitting, then walking to the local village for delicious fresh seafood. Or staying on the porch and grilling some chicken. Is there a place where you can do that? Kev said maybe it's Cape Cod. But I don't know anything about Cape Cod. Could it be Martha's Vinyard? I don't know anything about that either. I think maybe we need to go back to Maine to find the perfect place. But not a super touristy place. Less people, more loons.
Our challenge is Daphne, of course. Kev and I could sit on a porch and watch sailboats all day long and be perfectly content, but the shortest and squirmiest member of our family wouldn't put up with that for very long. There would have to be something to DO. The whole porch/sailboat scene sorta loses its magic when someone is whining "I'm BORED" in the background. I reckon we could bring the Legos and the DS.
Oh well. This summer is pretty much full, so we have at least a year to figure this all out. Daphne will be six next summer. Maybe she will be able to sit still longer than 30 seconds by then.
Places I want to go:
