Not a lot of prose today. Just the cold, hard facts. It's really hard to come back after vacation. Especially a vacation with the dogs. A vacation the dogs enjoyed as much as we did.
Vacation for this family is spent lakeside. We love the water, we have dogs who love the water – it's perfect. Here's what I find so refreshing about a vacation, besides the fact that I'm away from the hustle and bustle of every day life:
No make up. No hairdo.
No clothes (we wear bathing suits all day, sweats in the evening).
The dogs come along to enjoy vacation with us.
We spend the entire vacation with the dogs, doing what we all love.
The dogs are TIRED at the end of every day. There's no better sleep than a deep, relaxing sleep. We both (dogs and people) get that at the end of every day on vacation.
We all eat a whole lot less because we're always at the dock, always moving.
We always see a few bald eagles. There's nothing more majestic than watching a soaring eagle from the dock!
Finding new places to explore.
Vacations are nice I guess, because they're, well, vacations! We heartlily enjoyed ours and are dreaming about the next trip to the lake!
I guess the trick is to bring some vacation home with you. I do live near a very nice lake all the time and I’m trying to keep a “vacation mindset” all summer long. Dogs are such good teachers in this!
