What vacation spot to you return to again and again?
Funny this should come up, since I’m going on vacation in two weeks time. I like to go to Mustang Island, near Port Aransas, which is a part of North Padre Island, one of the barrier islands on the coast of Texas in the Gulf of Mexico. I love the ocean. I love the coast of Maine the best with its rocks but since I live here I’ll take what I can get.
I like to go in the Fall when There aren’t quite so many tourist and the weather is cooler (I hope; it was 101 on Sunday!). I like to go for long walks on the beach, go horseback riding on the beach, and just sit and read on the beach. I have a bed and breakfast 3 blocks from the beach and there are restaurants within walking distance.
This year I might try my hand at fishing in the bay. I’ve never been fishing on a boat in the bay. I’ve been fishing in a little boat on a lake and fishing in a stream but not on a bay. It’s not expensive and you rent the gear. The restaurants will even cook your catch, should you be so lucky. It would be an adventure.
I’m going for 4 days, just to have a little break from the day to day routine. I love the ocean there. It’s very peaceful and quiet–just what I need. I love the area and it’s not too far. I like to go every few years and it’s been far too long.
