Alamo wants to know! The weather will soon be warming up, and it’s time to start planning those vacations. Whether you are hoping to go somewhere new or somewhere that you have been before, why not pin those ideas? Where are you hoping to go this Summer (or Spring)?
Oh I have so many happy places! It would be hard to choose just one, and lucky for me, I don’t have to. One place I would love to visit again is the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. My husband and I used to drive there a lot when we first started dating. We spent many a weekend just chillin’ on the beach and having a few treats from the vendors. Then a few years ago, my daughter and I decided to spend her Spring Break there. We had so much fun that we did it again the next year. We stayed at a gorgeous hotel right on the beach (Dream Inn), and it was fun mother-daughter time. We spent hours in the arcade playing air hockey, Skee-Ball and other arcade classics and then we went on a few rides. We indulged in several clam chowder bread bowls. Okay, now I am craving them again. It would be fun to rent a car from Alamo for our trip…I am thinking maybe the Chrysler 200 Convertible. That sounds like the perfect girls getaway car, right? Maybe she and I will go to Santa Cruz again this year – we shall see!
Another happy place of mine is our dreamy vacation/retirement home. We have had it for a little over a year now and we go down there often. I don’t have a care in the world while we there. We spend a lot of time out back, looking at the lake and hanging out with our duck friends. I cannot wait to be there permanently!
Or who knows, we might go somewhere completely new! I would really love to head to Southern California and spend some time on the warm beaches. There is nothing like warm sand in the toes and a romantic moonlit walk on the shore when the sun sets.
