One thing’s for sure on a road trip: If you bring it in your car, you will eat it when you’re driving for 10 hours or so. So while some of our road trip snacks were good and yummy (hummus, carrots, celery, apples, bananas, peanut butter) some weren’t so great for us. (see everything else above) I guess it’s just human nature. KInd of like “If you build it, they will come” in Kevin Costner’s baseball movie;, in traveling, it’s “If you bring it, you will eat it”.
I am happy to report that if we had done no preparation or shopping it would’ve been worse, so I’m glad that there was a little forethought and thanks to you who gave suggestions! :)
We drove to the beach for a sandy Christmas, and here’s the sunrise pic that my hubby took our first morning here:
I’m also happy to report that I was asleep for the sunrise. Which is why he took the picture. I woke up a few hours later and got to enjoy a delicious bowl of oats with chopped apple and all-spice. Mmmm-mmmm. :)
As I enjoyed coffee and oats overlooking the beach, I watched my hubby and daughter below as they played frisbee and goofed around in the sand. Joy!!
Relaxation and fun in the sand has been good. Our son is grown up and as he says, “When you’re in college, you gotta get your stuff done, then you can have fun”. He had to stay back so he could “get his stuff done”, so we’ve missed him. Even though family time is one of the most important things about Christmas, it’s not the main thing. The reason Christmas is on our calendar is because of Jesus. His birth and life have changed the course of history ….and me, forever. Merry Christmas!!!
It’s a sandy Christmas!
