It is almost time for my trip to the beach! You’d think I’m going for a week or more, the way I’m gathering things together, making lists, etc.
All week long, these pieces of half-packed luggage have been sitting by my bed. Whenever I can tuck something away, which has to be an item I won’t be using again before I leave…in it goes.
At least I have refrained from bringing out my large luggage…my daughter has reminded me that other people will have luggage in the van. LOL.
One thing I haven’t forgotten…books. Maybe I won’t have much reading time, but you have to be prepared. For late nights, when everyone else is out doing other things, I can curl up in my hotel room and read a little. I’m thinking one of these, below. I’m already reading The Cutaway, by Christina Kovac.
I’ll be bringing Pippa, too, with many book choices, including One Perfect Lie, by Lisa Scottoline.
I also have a short book on my Kindle, one I downloaded this week: All Grown Up, by Jami Attenberg.
So….I will party with the others until I can make my excuses and retreat to my room…for reading, TV, etc. That’s how I enjoy myself, and since many people will be having a bonfire on the beach after the festivities, I will not be missed, I’m pretty sure.
Now you know my secret…I am basically a recluse who comes out to play for only a few hours into the night. That’s how I do things nowadays. I had my days of partying all night back in the day…now I prefer curling up to read.
What do you like to do when you are on “vacation”?
