Greetings from the Jersey Shore!
Does anyone else ever feel extra spaced out when they’re on vacation? My mom always says you get that way because you can. It’s like your body knows you won’t be needing to bring your A-game for a while, so it goes into recharge mode. While that’s not the most scientific explanation for why lying on the beach is so exhausting, it makes sense.
Naturally, we came prepared with lots of good food. Yesterday, after a morning walk to get (more) groceries, I threw together a weird-but-god yogurt bowl:
Chris and I walked from dinner to an ice cream stand, where we shared soft serve with hot fudge and peanut butter cups. Or more, I ate it and he took a few bites. He said he was still pretty full from dinner. Hey whatever, more for me.
The long walk home was really nice. I love how it stays warm in the summer.
Weird vampire dreams aside, I slept really well. White noise machine ocean sounds have nothing on the real thing.
