It’s been a long, LONG time since I’ve had a spring break, and even back in the day, I never went on any of the usual trips. I went home, hung out, played with the dog, did my laundry, etc. So when The Blonde Duck asked what I was doing for spring break, I began to ponder…
In reality, there is no break. More than likely, we won’t get back to the Outer Banks this spring. This is a hectic time of year for the Chief – er, Knight – and for me. The firehouse annual meeting is next week and officer – minus the Chief and his assistant – elections are the following week, and you really don’t want to hear the 47 reasons this is chaos in Leagueville.
So instead, I’m wishing I could grab my iPod or iPhone and build an appropriate list on Pandora. You know…
- The Beach Boys, Kokomo
- Uncle Kracker, Smile, Drift Away, Follow Me, etc.
- Bryan Adams, Summer of ’69
- Don Henley, Boys of Summer
- John Fogerty, Centerfield
- About 100 more, but you get the point!
Where would I go? Well, at the moment, Florida and spring training sounds good. A delivery guy was sharing stories about his trips with his elderly father, a Detriot fan. Love me some baseball… but I also love the ocean – OBX, baby – and I find my zen daily on those wooded trails I keep sharing with you.
I guess my trip in late March to Scottsdale and Phoenix one year counts as a spring break, but that too was YEARS ago, and I didn’t take a single photo. I’d never turn down a trip back to Sedona or Phoenix!
Really though, I’d like to rent an RV, grab the fur-girls and the Knight and visit our friends spread out all over. (Sorry Kiwi relations… maybe another year?)
Do you get a spring break? If so, what are you doing? If not, where would you go and/or what would you do if you did?
