We hit the sunny beaches where we occupy ourselves keeping the sun off our skin, the saltwater off our bodies, and the sand out of our belongings.

Headin' to the beach. For a week.
Yes, Floridians do vacation at the beach, believe it or not. A change of scenery is a change of scenery.
We've been taking our beach holiday for five years now. It's a tradition. Go with three other families. We all stay in different places but break bread together in the evening -- I'm the head chef, dontcha know. I love our locale -- it's very laid-back and extremely non-commercial. The way Florida was when I was growing up. Days are spent in bathing suits and coverups, with the only shoes in the suitcase being flip flops.
It's a great time to rest, relax and recharge. When the biggest decision one has to make is which trashy beach novel to read next. Will is very excited about going -- he loves hanging with the other kids and "going CRASH" in the waves and putzing about in the pool.
It's gonna be a great week. I can just feel it.
Or is that sand in the bathing suit already. Hard to tell...
A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in. ~ Robert Orben
