I’m heading off to the beach today for the first and last time of this year's summer vacation. I only live 15 minutes from Padre Island, but for some reason or the other I haven’t taken the kids yet. Oh yeah, it might be the fact that I’ve been nursing my hubby who had his hip replaced, or the fact we spent a lot of the beginning of summer in the beautiful state of Colorado, or even that my kids have not asked once to go to the beach. Regardless, I often wonder why people who live so close to something so cool, don’t go. You know the way people who live in New York City have never been to the Empire State Building. Or people who live in Washington DC have never been to the White House. I sometimes get really frustrated that I don’t take more vacations in my own backyard. There is really a lot to do here otherwise so many tourists from up north wouldn’t come to visit. I was just curious if anyone else feels the way I do. Oops, I forgot the best reason for not going to the beach. Shall we say it together ladies? The Bathing Suit!
