If you are anything like me you are staying close to home this summer. I thought it would be fun to talk about staycations. There is an art to a staycation. For instance, it wouldn’t be much of a vacation if you had to cook, so takeout is a must. :) Basically, if it’s something you normally have to do while at home, then plan a way to not do it during your staycation, unless you truly want to do those things.
I’m blessed to live in a central location that will allow me to be at the coast, the mountains, large cities, small towns, the country side, or multiple lakes in under two hours. Think about what is near you that you could easily travel to and enjoy in a single day and then return home for the night.
Maybe it’s a trip to the swimming pool in your backyard or a friend’s who is willing to let you take it over for a day. Some of my fondest memories are of spending the day poolside–we didn’t have a pool, but we knew people who did. Just remember the sunblock! I had way too many sunburns growing up. I’m not sure they even had sunblock in the 70s.
Perhaps, a day hiking in the woods is more your speed. Don’t forget the insect repellant. Or maybe a hammock in the backyard along with a good book is more to your liking.
Whatever you choose to do, do it with style and make it special. And don’t forget your latest read. :)
Have you taken a staycation? What did you do?
