Inspired by Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #55: Dreamy
Living in the northeastern United States, I have endured many snowstorms, blizzards and variations on the theme of freezing rain and sleet. Along with gloomy cloudy skies for days on end – with matching sub freezing temperatures.
I know there are people who enjoy the sitting-by-a-roaring-fire aspect of that time of year…known as late fall, winter and early spring where I live. They enjoy wearing multiple layers of cozy flannel shirts, wool socks and thick sweaters. Before venturing outdoors. To navigate the front steps. Which are icy.
I dream of warm…and sunny…and relaxing.
San Diego – more specifically Coronado, California.
I was lucky enough to vacation there 6 or 7 times. Just my husband and me. Our two children came along twice. They loved it too.
In 2006 – my last visit there – it was me, myself and I. Back when I could travel easily. Hustling through an airport with several suitcases…not a problem. Eating whatever and wherever I wanted to. Enjoying local cuisine…with no worries or restrictions.
And most importantly: the energy to walk and explore for hours.
I’m so glad I didn’t wait.
