By the time you get around to reading this, I will be on my way to Taos. You guys know I get up there once or twice a year. I especially love going this time of year because our place is at 8500 feet…which means, cold nights, cool days. I cannot WAIT to get out of this heat. And I really like going to the mountains because there is always so much to do. Hiking, trail running, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, 4-wheelers, fishing, shopping, eating.
But today, I got one of those social media alerts about a deal on a beach house in Cabo San Lucas. That’s kind of hot, too. But there is the ocean right in front of you to cool off. And there is beer and mojitos and cold drinks in pineapple shells. There is zip-lining and snorkling and jet skis. I think I could be very comfortable on the beach.
A few weeks ago, we were in New York. I would like to go to New York on vacation, and not for work. Because even though it is hot, it’s not as hot as it is here. And there is shopping and walking and shows to see and great food for gnoshing and cosmopolitan living.
I wish I could do all three in the next couple of weeks. Can you imagine the nightmare of packing for the mountains, the beach, and the city? Anh….I think I will stick with the mountains. I will think of you guys next week when I am sitting on the deck in the middle of the afternoon and not burning. I will think of you when I drink my wine and eat my steak and laugh with my family. I will think of you when I realize I have no phone service, no internet, and only a kindle to pass the time with. Yeah. Can’t wait.
Which would you prefer? A vacation in the mountains? The Beach? The city? What are you summer plans? What’s the best vacation you’ve ever taken?
