We walked through shops and soaked up the surprisingly warm weekend weather. We ate at every opportunity we had and took every chance to savor a cocktail or just some quiet time. We sampled rum and beer and wine (not all in the same day). We shopped and relaxed and rolled the windows down without any little voice shouting "I've had enough" or "I don't like windows down".
We stayed at "rustic" Inn where the water smelled but the view was fantastic. We didn't care or complain. We enjoyed the view. We ate outside as much as possible. We sat in silence taking it all in. We stayed out late and slept until the sun came streaming through our windows.
We watched the sunset on the edge of a cliff. We enjoyed a wedding and dancing and singing Sweet Caroline at the top of our lungs. We ate too many cupcakes and brought chocolate bars and savored cups of coffee.
We remembered how we used to love road trips. How the windows down and Tom Petty blaring could remind us of what it was like to be 18. We acknowledged how such a short trip can revive you. We finished each others sentences and completed each others thoughts.
We took in the views and I tried to capture all the moments. We connected with family we hadn't seen in years and realized we had more in common than we thought. We embraced new friends and shared stories and laughed.
We made plans to go back, to take more road trips, to get away for just a bit. We found a new favorite spot, that for a weekend fit us so well. We were warm and for the first time in months the weather agreed with us.
We got away from it all, which is so very wonderful every once in a little while.
