Part of what is supposed to make this vacation so special is the fact that it's the last vacation I'm taking with my family before I get married. Tomorrow we're packing up and going home to Mapleton, so this is the last day. It's kind of cloudy and rainy, which is not really the best weather for swimming, so I'm wrapped up in my sleeping bag, in my tent, looking at the pictures we took this week and pondering our many excursions.
This really has been the best family vacation we've ever taken, I think. (Though, I will be the first to admit that this might be because I know it's the last.) I got to swim, kayak, snorkel, fly kites, eat out, hang with the family, go to the beach, play volleyball, and eat Kettle sea salt and vinegar chips and tree ripened peaches. I even had texts from my sweetheart when I was bored. Does it get much better than that? (The correct answer is: Yes, it would have been a million times better if my sweetheart was actually here.)
