In Praise of the 24-Hour Vacation

Proof that you don't have to have a lot of TIME to have a great getaway...

Sunday afternoon, we left the house at about 1 PM and drove on up to here.  Had a picnic, went out on a paddle boat, spent quality time in the woods. 

Then, about 4 PM, pulled in here, where we had a king-sized whirlpool room.  The rest, as they say, is history.

By the time we were checking out this morning, we both felt like we'd been away a week. 

I highly recommend a similar getaway for those of you who *think* you can't afford a vacation. 
You may not be able to afford a week...but I suspect you can afford 24 hours. :-)

Just remember to leave the TV off--and get a room like we had, with NO CLOCK in it. :-)
Looking forward to the next one!

Good on ya. Now remember to do this again before too long. Mini-vacs can be just as refreshing as longer ones.
