Planning for Summer

The summer is over and we are well into fall. Naturally it is time to start looking towards the next year. It is time to think about reservations and deposits and travel arrangements. Hilton Head has become a yearly tradition for my family. We enjoy the weather and the different activities which are available. We are also enamoured with the fact that being in Sea Pines Resort allows us to relax in a comfortable setting. This comfort is due to superior security, but it comes at a price. The price is well worth it so that you can almost feel good enough to leave the door unlocked at night - though you will not.

Our last trip to Hilton Head was for eight days and it still did not seem long enough. I would like to be able to stay there an entire month next year. This way we will not have to plan things out to make sure we do not miss out on anything. We will be able to completely relax without having to worry about anything. It sounds so good to go for an entire month without having to work or worry.

Can I do it? Can I go a whole month without working? It does not seem likely seeing as I am the guy who normally works seven days a week on multiple projects at once. Part of me is driven by the money. Part of me is driven from trying to keep from not being bored. I cannot even go a few hours with hanging out with my daughter at night without wanting to write something for a current project or making a post to one of my blogs.

It will be tough, but with everything there is to do at Hilton Head, I think I might be able to manage the impossible. I can go to the horse stables so that my son can ride a horse and maybe my daughter can ride a pony. I can climb the lighthouse again and see the view of the bay. I can walk through the miles of eco-friendly nature walks. I can ride my bike all over the island. Naturally, I can also relax on the beach or play in the ocean with my kids.

Where do you like to vacation at? I love to hear where people go for vacations and what they like to do there. I would hope that you are doing something more than what I used to do when I was younger and just stay at home collecting vacation pay. I would love to hear what you have to say about your vacation time. Post a message or shoot me an email and let me know where it is you like to go for your summer vacation. I look forward to hearing from you.

Until then, it is time for me to get back to my travel arrangements so that I can commit myself to a month of pure relaxation. Look out Hilton Head, trouble's coming back.
