When our children were younger, we did road trips for family vacations. We drove north several times, doing a loop that included New England one time, up into Canada--Ontario and Quebec--another, south another trip to Disney World, stopping at some of the east coast islands along the way. But it has been quite a while since we have done a road trip.
Recently our daughter asked if we wanted to join her, her husband and daughter for a mini-vacation on Hilton Head. We took about two seconds (thinking about having that time with our granddaughter...of course, and with our daughter and son-in-law) and said SURE.
So, we are off on a road trip.
Long stretches of highway. Lots of time for conversation, or listening to music, or looking around. Big sky up ahead.
And then we arrive at our destination.
The piece de resistance!
Road trip? Totally worth it.
