That time of spring again...

It's that time of year. I need to go to the beach. For years and years we made our yearly trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama during the spring, when my sister and her family would come down from NY during their break from teaching. Recently the month for that trip has changed to August, but either husband and I and my parent's, or just husband and I, have sneaked away sometime in April or May for a couple of days. I need to do this. Problem is that Gulf Shores is now 4 hours further away. Sure, there are beaches here, Galveston and all that. But it's just not the same. In Gulf Shores, we know all the restaurants, the stores, the little places that have made it my second home for so many years.



That view almost makes the 9 hour drive worth it for just 2 nights. But maybe it's time to check out a new place closer to where we are now? Honestly, at this point, a Slip N Slide in the backyard could buy me a couple of more months until I absolutely HAVE to get out of the city.
