Thinking Out Loud Thursday - September 3, 2020

Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday!  I'm not doing a lot of thinking this week because WE ARE ON VACATION!

After much vacillating, Eric and I decided we would take a little trip.  It wouldn't be the trip to Barcelona that we thought we would be taking this year, but a little getaway was needed.  With COVID, we've all been dealing with our own type of stress.  A little break from the constant worry of who you're standing next to, what you've touched, and wearing a mask all day would be a blessing.

We tried to plan the safest trip possible, so we settled on a driving trip to the beach.  We rented a condo in Fort Morgan, Alabama with the gulf in our site and brought all our food with us.  No eating out or chatting with new people around the pool.

Instead, we've been hanging out with the birds and crabs on the beach.  Honestly, I think we watched that crab come in and out of his hole for an hour!

Instead of fancy cocktails over dinner at a hip restaurant, we're drinking cocktails straight out of the bottle...

We've also been entertained with the random flyovers by the US Air Force.

The reading has been great too!  This slow reader finished one book and I'm well on my way to the second.

Overall, it's been WONDERFUL!  We are going to go back to our lives next week feeling renewed and refreshed.  This wasn't the 2020 vacation we thought we would be having, but what this year has been what we thought it would be!

Now it's your turn - what are you thinking out loud about?  Link up and share!
