Mixing It Up
I don't understand these people that vacation at the same place every year.
Yeah if you have a *free* place to stay it makes sense in the short run. But it's a big world out there...
You have to fight turning into a *creature of habit* with all your might.
Last year we went on a mini vacation to Sandusky, Ohio - to a homeschool convention.
This year I really wanted to do the Jersey Shore....er, the South Jersey Shore which isn't to be confused with that show that I've still never seen. South Jersey is Philadelphia country, really.
I had such a great time, again, at my golf tournament in Wildwood three weeks ago I got to thinking about bringing the entire fam down.
Ocean City, pictured above, is where we are heading next week for 5 nights ($988 motel). I've never been there before. All I know is that it is a *dry* town, i.e. no alcohol, period. And that it's supposed to be terrific for young children.
My wife's family does have a house out in the Hamptons, but, again, I don't think it's healthy to spend all our vacations there, no matter how *cheap*.
Branch out a little, will youse? The alternative is that you WILL TURN INTO YOUR PARENTS.
